The Republic of Ireland is NOT Northern Ireland - please do not boycott Ireland, it is a beautiful country and they love animals of all kinds there!

Mimi- PLEASE NOTE THIS PETITION TARGETS THE BCC, and does NOT aim at the innocent people of NIreland or Ireland, as many of those same people have fought long and hard for Lennox release over the past few years. THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE BCC, and the way in which THEY MURDERED an innocent dog all due to BSL!

I totally understand, Jayne - thanks. I was just trying to correct anyone's misperceptions that the Republic of Ireland (or of course, the Northern Irish people either) had anything to do with Lennox's murder.

Allie you're right , but this particular case is nuts , the dog was registered for 5 years , in Belfast , DNA proof , lies in court , on and on I think this was a vendetta against the owners of Lennox and they got away with it , and that really stinks

Outrageous, and a very dark day for mankind. I hope Karma shows you (those responsible for murdering Lennox) no mercy. Maybe she will judge you based on how you look, what "type" you look, and maybe she will decide you should die for your looks. That would be true justice.

I had hoped to someday visit Ireland. But now.....not in THIS lifetime. I hope your tourism goes down the tank, as well it should. I am ashamed to be part of the same human race as those responsible for this innocent dog...

Yes, please don't blame the Republic of Ireland for this crime. It was Northern Ireland, part of Great Britain, and residents of the Republic would be more than horrified to be identified as the same country!

My family roots are from Ireland- the family that was a victim to this cruelty is also Irish. Profiling any creature by race or breed -- human, dog or otherwise is BS. Breed Specific Legislation is no different than racial profiling legislation and genocide based on race.

I agree Aundy, which leads to the question of why are so many people upset over the death of a single dog while thousands of people are dying every day from violence, malnutrition and disease? I don't see any posts about that, do you?

This isn't about just a single dog- it is about an entire breed. We have CNN for humans- this is an outrage because animals can't speak for themselves. By recognizing their lives are as justified as human lives should alter perspectives. We got rid of laws that justify killing people based on race in most 1st world countries. The fact that people still function on such primitive rationale to justify killing is depressing.

I am extremely disappointed with the legal system in Ireland. I hope to visit one day because I am third generation born Irish. Forever I will remember how unjust this was, the murder of a dog who committed no crime. Blood on your hands.

I agree, I will NEVER get out of my head the story of poor Lennox and how he was murdered so unjustely. :( My only hope is that maybe SOMETHING good will come of this. Like how stupid BSL is! If something isn't done about it, it's going to be really scary which breeds they begin to target. It's a very slippery slope!

I did not realize I needed a geography lesson, but apparently I do.
Yes, politically it's separate, but it's all on the same piece of land. It's the same as Montreal wanting to be it's own country. I have family in Ontario from Germany who tell me all about the attitude of separation. Splitting hairs. Really. Nothing better to do than tell me Belfast is part of the UK when I am sure people in Belfast want very little to do with the UK. Or there, I could be wrong again because I don't...

Lennox's death was wrong, no doubt about it but don't blame the entire TWO countries! I don't know what can be done but BSL has got to be stopped world wide. There is no such thing as a 'bad breed'. I've shown dogs for many years and have been alongs side APBT's, Am Staffs, and other 'bully breeds'. yes, there are biters out there. many dog bites are from retrievers, spaniels, chichuas and others. the ONLY reason 'pit bull' types get media attention is because they are super strong and...

I can. Blame the entire two countries, I mean. We could stop this if we all united and meant it. But we don't.

And part of the BSL problem is a real problem. I moved here from NYC 2 years ago. During my time in NYC, if I saw a, let's be real here, a pit bull or a rottweiler, approaching, I did a quick look to evaluate the owner. NOT the dog. The owner. Depending on what I saw, I drifted out of line of danger, or stopped to see if the owner and the dog would be interested in a...

Depending on what I saw, I drifted out of line of danger, or stopped to see if the owner and the dog would be interested in a little social pet from a stranger. And before anyone jumps to conclusions, what I was looking for in an owner was a feeling of calm and serenity. I also feel that dogs of all kinds in urban areas tend to suffer an extreme lack of effective exercise ... which leads to stressed dogs and which shows in stressed owners.

Here, things are more difficult to assess. I never walk anywhere. Many of the BSL dogs that I see are penned or chained on long lead lines. My automatic, and perhaps incorrect immediate assumption, is that those dogs would be likely to be dangerous.

hi Terri, yep, it is the owners' fault for bad behavior. I agree with you that I look first at the owner THEN the dog. having been around dogs since I was a youngster, I am always cautious around a 'new' (to me) dog. I don't think I've ever jumped to the conclusion that a dog was mean just because s/he looked like a 'something'. We definitely need more owner education!

People boycotting Ireland/N Ireland - it won't really help, and the only people who will suffer are the decent people of that country who tried for TWO years to save Lennox. Take a look at your own countries - maybe you have kill shelters or even the human death penalty?

And if you want to help, please contact the PSNI and ask them to investigate the state of where Lennox was held for the past 2 years. Allegations of animal abuse are taken seriously and it has been reported that he was kept in a dark concrete room with no light and no socialization
