Opposing lawmakers team up on pit bull issue

Columbus, OH – Pit bulls have been blamed in a few very serious attacks in Ohio in recent weeks. In Lorain, a five-year-old boy was hospitalized after an attack by a pit bull. And last month, pit bulls mauled a Youngstown boy, bit a 12-year-old Cincinnati boy 16 times, and went after two suburban Columbus postal workers. But the problem pit bulls present is so difficult that two lawmakers with opposite views are teaming up to deal with it. Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler reports.
