The Ohio Senate passed a revised vicious-dog law, allowing for animal-control officers to institute disciplinary measures, such as fines or felony charges, for any nuisance dog, regardless of its breed. The current version only allows for pit bulls to be immediately labeled as vicious, often hamstringing animal-control officers when the offending animal is not a pit bull. The bill now moves back to the state's House of Representatives.
