What is the current state of the law on pit bull legislation in the United States?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Cochrane v. Ontario (Attorney General), 2007 CanLII 9231 (ON SC):

There is one American case, however, in which a court has upheld a challenge to the legislation. That is the case of Toledo v. Tellings. The City of Toledo’s ordinance regulated the ownership or vicious dogs. Vicious dogs were defined to include a dog that “(b)elongs to a breed that is commonly known as a pit bull dog”. The court distinguished previous cases on the basis that they relied on “…now outdated information which perpetuated a stereotypical image of pit bulls” (at para. 63).
