Lennox is now dead.
MURDERED by the Belfast City Council.
Dangerous dog is put to sleep following final court decision
11 July 2012
Belfast City Council confirmed today that the dog Lennox, an illegal pit-bull terrier type, has been humanely put to sleep. This was in accordance with the Order of the County Court which was affirmed by the Northern Ireland Court of Appeal.
Whilst there is an exemption scheme to which dogs of this type (pit-bull terrier type) may be admitted as an alternative to destruction, there were no such measures that could be applied in this case that would address the concerns relating to public safety. The Council`s expert described the dog as one of the most unpredictable and dangerous dogs he had come across.
Over the past two years, Council officials have been subjected to a sustained campaign of abuse including threats of violence and death threats. The Council has been in ongoing contact with the PSNI in relation to that.
The Council regrets that the court action was necessary but would emphasise that the safety of the public remains its key priority.
Lennox was taken away from his loving family and was secreted away for the past two years whilst a fierce battle was held by his family fighting hard and long for his release.
This beautiful dog was very much loved, he was a sick little girls loving helper, her angel. Lennox never bit anyone or did anything to deserve the cruelty that the BCC caused him and his family.
Lennox was an innocent dog, an innocent victim of BSL, a victim of a dirty disgusting Council that need to be all sacked!
Lennox will never be forgotten by millions of animal lovers worldwide who fought so hard along side his family for his release. To his wonderful family we give all love and support.
RIP Lennox xox
