Toledo City Council changes controversial vicious dog law

Toledo's vicious dog law has been changed. City Council voted Tuesday to change the law which has been ruled unconstitutional because it unfairly targets pit bulls.
These changes include ending breed specific determinations. That means a dangerous dog will be defined by its behavior not its breed.
There will be bigger fines for dog bites, restrictions on how long a dog can be tied up outside, and reckless dog owners could have their pets seized.
