Yakima to Punish Pit Bull Owners Who Lie About Service Status

Yakima city officials are taking action to prevent pit bull owners from falsely claiming their dogs are service animals to try and get around the city ban of the breed.

City Codes Manager Joe Caruso says beginning immediately he is requiring service dog owners to sign a form that says they could be charge if they are not telling the truth.

Anyone that comes in or anyone that’s registered right now in the last couple of months that we’ve had the spike of pit bulls as service dogs, we will have them sign an additional document.

Caruso says two pit bulls that owners claimed were service dogs have been in the news lately. One attacked a cat another bit three people. Caruso says from now on if a person lies about their pit bull being a service dog they could be charged with perjury.
