Belfast...you had an opportunity and you chose to ignore it or was it willful? Whatever it was, you made the wrong decision. The world is disgusted with what you've done and hell will freeze over before we forget it.

Beautifully stated, Louise... The BelfastCC needs to be replaced... makes me ashamed to even think that I have 1/4th Irish background in my roots. My ancestors must have seen the writing on the wall when some of them left many years ago.

Thanks Janee...I don't blame the Irish people. I don't even blame the people in Belfast...there were many there fighting for Lennox too. The blame for this chicanery lies squarely on the shoulders of the BCC. They need to be removed from their posts and the sooner the better.

That is unfortunate because the Republic of Ireland had nothing to do with this case - would hate to see tourism to the Republic suffer because of what happened in Northern Ireland which is part of the UK.

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!

Dear Joanne, i am an Australian animal advocate..not a Brit. Please note...this petition is NOT targetting anyone other than the BCC!

I REPEAT ...no one has issues other than with the BCC..:( SO..please read my petition again, many thanks Jayne

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...

I hope there will be an investigation as a result of this because the BCC didn't listen to anyone, including First Minister Peter Robinson. They had alternatives but were stubbornly determined to kill Lennox. Now there is a video of the dog warden, A. Lightfoot petting him and some fool is taunting him. You can see Lennox is confused, but his tail wags and he kisses the warden. SHE LIED UNDER OATH that she feared the dog, yet it is clear she put her face next to him for kisses. No...

You can see Lennox is confused, but his tail wags and he kisses the warden. SHE LIED UNDER OATH that she feared the dog, yet it is clear she put her face next to him for kisses. No muzzle was used. I emailed the link to them yesterday with a note stating that the world knows what they did. It is not the people of Northern Ireland it is the BCC!!! They should all lose their jobs for what they did to Lennox and his family. I am SO happy not to live in a place where they can just come over and take your dog from your home!!! He was a SERVICE DOG!!! An innocent family member falsely imprisoned for 2 years and put to death without real cause. An abomination!!! USA citizens...We must stand together, though and fight BSL so this never happens here!!!

I agree this seems an incredibly horrible and cruel case of abuse - and finally murder - of this poor animal. However, when it comes to BSL --- I would never, EVER feel comfortable living next door to a Presa Canario or Boerboel, for example. Some breeds are simply NOT suitable as pets in the hands of average people. Unfortunately.
