Pit bull advocates are celebrating another victory in the war against BSL after Cincinatti, repealed a long standing breed ban. According to the City Beat, “After a long, arduous battle for dog lovers and Cincinnati animal welfare advocates, success has arrived. Today, Cincinnati City Council voted 8-1 to officially repeal the breed-specific language in Cincinnati’s vicious dog ordinance, which previously made ownership of pit bulls within city limits illegal.”

“It’s fantastic. It’s been a long effort, but we’ve had some great supporters from all across the country … that’s had an overwhelming affect on Council. Dog owners, of pit bulls or not, have flooded Council with requests to change the law,” said Jim Tomaszewski, SPCA Cincinnati trustee. Tomaszewski spearheaded the campaign to eliminate the ban.

Pit Bull proponents embraced the decision after facing nine years of discrimination. The amendments to Section 701-1-V of the Cincinnati Municipal code will completely eliminate breed-specific terminology.

Great news! Hopefully the state of Maryland will pay attention. They'll be dealing with a repeal some day as well.

I hate on Denver for having a pit bull ban. In this city they are allowed to confiscate pit bull dogs immediately and kill them. A major interstate highway goes right through the city. I don't think every traveling pit bull owner knows about this.

The most of the state is kinder. Where I live they are allowed and the shelter does not put them down. They are popular dogs in every state.
