Ohio is becoming THE irresponsible dangerous dog owners dream. Dog owners let their maulers run loose because they know damn well there is barely any punishment at all, even if it mauls or kills someone. Charges with steep fines need to be routine and jail time if you dog mauls or kills someone. The Cane Corso is an Italian HUNTING and guard dog with molosser lineage, like pit bulls and rottweilers. They are known to be untrusting (and therefor can be dangerous) to strangers.
