Dianne Garret Reports. Whitehall Enforcing Vicious and Dangerous Dog Law

Mayor John Wolfe has issued a reminder that all dogs were to be licensed by February 1. If you own a pit bull or any sub-species of this breed, by definition of state law, these animals are automatically declared vicious. Owners of these animals must comply immediately with the provisions of Chapter Five of the Administrative Code pertinent sections: 505.1, 505.2, 505.14, 505.21, 505.22 and 1125.06.

Failure to register these animals with the Whitehall Police Department and obtain a valid license through Franklin County can result in substantial penalties being invoked.

These provisions fall under Ordinances 49-08 and 61-08.
