I Eat Dog Food for Nitro’s Law: Day 5, Out of the Package


I am eating dog food every day (one full meal a day), starting February 1, 2011, and posting a video diary of it on YouTube every single day until Nitro’s Law gets reintroduced to the Ohio House of Representatives. Nitro’s Law, formerly known as House Bill 70 in Ohio, would increase the penalty to a fifth degree felony for egregious acts of animal cruelty by the animal’s caretaker, punishable by a year in jail per count. According to the Humane Society of the United States, Ohio ranks 45th in the nation for animal cruelty laws. The need for tougher laws in this state became an issue after 7 dead and 12 starving dogs were discovered in October of 2008 at High Caliber K-9, a boarding kennel in Youngstown, OH. Nitro, a beloved pet Rottweiler, was left in the care of that facility while his human family attended to a sick family member out of state. The facility owner, Steve Croley, was sentenced to four months in jail and a small fine after only four misdemeanor charges were pursued. He did, however, have his American Kennel Club privileges revoked for 10 years, and the AKC fined him 00.00. This isn’t just a local issue; it’s a national issue. This didn’t happen in my home state, but as someone who speaks up for animals, I consider them all in my backyard. Animals don’t vote, but their owners do. If this can happen in Ohio, it can happen anywhere, and it’s important for people to be aware of the laws in their state. Only 4 states in the nation do not consider animal
