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
SO angry and disgusted for the way Lennox case was handled, and the dog warden that dealt with Lennox Sandie Lightfoot should be put up for perjury!
That will be our next mission!!!!
Put her to sleep!
Michelle Kane, I think they likely mistreated him. I am very suspicious of the dog walker who testified that Lennox was "dangerous and unpredictable." There should be a full investigation on this. As for the warden Lightfoot, she perjured herself and there is a video on YouTube that shows her petting Lennox and putting her face next to his...no muzzle! Obviously she was not in fear of the "most dangerous and unpredictable dog she'd ever seen." LIARS & MURDERERS the lot of them!!!
we all know what they were trying to hide-the truth-and the truth was this dog was not a danger-they didnt want vets stating that fact in public
could they not get a COURT ORDER? I am ashamed of MAN KIND, "MAN" mostly...and Ireland.
Where's Bono Vox now? He supports everything and is Irish.... Shame on you, Ireland and Irish people who let a horrid thing like that happen....
Stop attacking irish people! First of all, you are all messing up everything because Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are totaly independent countries and Republic of Ireland has nothing to do with this tragedy! And second, irish/british civilians from Northern Ireland didn't let this happen, they simply couldn't do anything besides calling and protesting!
I know, Alex, but I just can't stand the fact that they murdered an innocent animal !!
I'm with you, I get myself in tears all the time because of what these nazists did! But we have to keep together and never, ever blame the wrong people for this.
You are right. I am sorry about this. But really it's a shame ... I am Brazilian and bad things happen to animals, specially cats and dogs here too. The worst part is being unable to do anything about it
I'm ashamed of the Irish blood that runs through my veins!!! I am fully aware that Belfast if under British rule.. That being said, Why didn't the Queen step up? She granted a pardon for Princess Anne's dog who actually DID attack two children.. Her dog also attacked the Queen's dog and chewed it up so bad that the poor thing had to be put to sleep due to the injuries.. Lennox did NOTHING wrong and she stood back and let Lennox be murdered!!
Olhe ai, também sou brasileira! E estou arrasada com o que aconteceu com o Lennox e também por saber que ele esta longe de ser o unico. Mas tenho a impressão de que as pessoas estão se unindo mais e mais e isso me traz esperança.
Alex Kessler Affonso KINDLY READ MY PETITION again....i am NOT and i repeat NOT targetting anyone other than the BCC...thankyou Jayne
Michele Rambo If you are aware then you know Republic of Ireland has nothing to do with this and so, people shouldn't talk about irish and Ireland but about Northern Ireland. And yes, I've being asking the same question about that useless queen, where is she and why she didn't do anything about this? As I said, it's not the civilians fault, it's the government and all it's useless cruel people like this queen whose existence's use I never understood!
Alex Kessler Affonso ...this petition is NOT targetting anyone other than the BCC! I have no issues with the innocent people of Northern Ireland or Ireland. Many of those same people have helped fight for him. I REPEAT ...no one has issues other than with the BCC..:( SO..please read my petition again, many thanks Jayne
Jayne Cvetanoski I know that, Jayne and I already signed the petition. It wasn't you, it where other people who are mistaken things.
I have just got off the phone with my travel company. As promised, my trip to Ireland booked for this September has been officially changed to Scotland! It was an extra expense but my conscience is clear! Rot in hell Ireland! You're halfway there as it is.
Ireland the Republic is a separate country. Northern Ireland is ruled by the British.
Yes, I am aware.
Sheila Grandy and who cares, right?
You were going to another country ( Ireland, which had nothing to do with the dog) , but instead decided to go to the country, which actually murdered the dog? And even paid more to do that? Scotland , just like North Ireland, is part of the UK and it is UK, that killed the dog.
Yeah, I don't get this ignorant people!
hey that joanne dont start dissing uk ok our country is bollocked but dont you dare say it is something what uk would do coz im telling you lady we would never kill an innocent animal if an animal dog severally hurts or kills someone then it would be destroyed but otherwise we wouldnt go down that route what ive read about usa having gas chambers at aniamal shelters i find that appaullin in uk if our shelters full we move our animals to different ones may be uk is a sad country and usa is so great but we care about animals
I don't think that's what she meant. We are not trying to ofend UK here but people have to know that Republic of Ireland has nothing to do with this, I think that was her point. And also, that civilians are not guilty for what happened to Lennox. The only one here who insists in laughing on other's country is Sheryl, who obviously doesn't respect any country or people and perhaps she thinks the USA is perfect.
In all fairness to all of theindividual people of the UK and elsewhere, many of them did not support the BCC's actions either. But it is important to understand that the Republic of Ireland is not connected to Northern Ireland politically so should have no connection to this.
ok...umm it's not like the entire country did this the city council did....I'm sure there are a lot of angry fols there too....imagine how the owners feel.
Sheila yesterday when I heard Lennox had been killed was the first time I was ashamed to be Irish but there are so many in Ireland that also opposed his death and are saddened by his tragic death.
Boycotting The whole of Ireland. I will never support the country in any way, and will no longer take holidays there.
Stop this, all of you! There are two countries in that island. Republic of Ireland is independent of Northern Ireland and therefor they have nothing to do with this mess! I love Republic of Ireland and it's not fair that you blame them. Northern Ireland belongs to UK, people! Don't target the Republic and don't target the Northern Ireland civilians, many of them are sad about all this too! It's the government and the court who we have to blame!
Alex Kessler Affonso we know there are people there that also fought Lennox.. the world is angry right now and together we should stand to let that specific group of people responsible for the death of lennox know how we feel..
For sure, Gertrude! They should know the size of our anger and they have to pay for what they did! I just don't want people to mess things up and generalize everyone.
ALEX...this petition is NOT targetting anyone other than the BCC! I have no issues with the innocent people of Northern Ireland or Ireland. Many of those same people have helped fight for him. I REPEAT ...no one has issues other than with the BCC..:( SO..please read my petition again, many thanks Jayne
It is not Ireland....they are victims of the evil British Empire!!!! Boycott all that is British!!!! That includes Belfast Ireland.
well said alex i live in the republic of ireland and we dont have the same daft law that let this happen to poor lennox
Lennox is dead...blame them all
Blame them all? If you think it's right to generalize people then we should blame you too! As well as we should blame every person in the world for every crime commited.
Ann Gardner And Republic of Ireland has my love since always and will keep having it!
thank you alex the republic of ireland is a lovely country so is the north of ireland but the north has the law that did this lik the uk it is the law we should be changing not what we think of a country
it is belfast council we that should be changed and the people that took lennox in the 1st place should be changed not the lovely country and all its people
Feel ashamed to be British right now.... Northern Ireland you could have done more for Lennox and all of the Belfast City Councillors connected to this sorry affair should be immediately sacked and charged with animal cruelty.... :-( XX
Friends please sign and share!! <3 BSL and the DDA your days are numbered.... :-( XX
I signed, and also feel ashamed to be British :-((
Andrea Woodward-Hunt What do we sign & where? I'd LOVE to sign!
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.
Sue Johnson click on the Causes link and sign the petition on there <3 XX
I wont go there either. I don't care if the citizens are upset. They should be that their government is a disgrace. I am still not going there. Not one dollar of my hard earned and painfully saved vacation money will be spent there. EVER! I am embarrassed to say I am Irish!
I wasn't going to respond to this, but I have never insulted you or been rude to you, not that I am aware of anyway. I don't think it is nice to say I should get a life because of my opinion. You don't have to agree with but you dont have to say I should get a life.
OK! Who says these people value the life of a dog more than the humans? This is just one story of injustice towards a family. There were humans that owned this dog. This injustice is against the human owners as much as the dog. I believe that there are people fighting all over the world trying their best to help with human slavery, abuses of children, women, and animals! Folks like myself just trying to do what ever little part we can. Even if that means we all take up a cause. A life is a...

If we are trying to be of good and help, that means we are not doing evil. There are many people working very hard to lend a hand no matter how small to fight against the abuses of all living creatures. Just because we dont see it doesn't mean it isn't happening. If you look for good stories of bravery, if you seek out where people are pulling together to help others you will find it. I realize the human race is self centered. But Dave there are so many people out in the world trying to help others, you may not see it but people "are" out there fighting for ALL living creatures.
Just for the record...the people that I associate with DONT buy products from China.
It is truly a pity! That humans are fighting against humans who are trying to help ALL living beings! I dont understand. :o(((
Everyone world wide hit Belfast where it will hurt them in their pockets , do not visit Belfast ever again, I have now cancelled my trip to the Titanic display, Belfast will not get a penny from me or any of my family that's for sure. It was just Belfast being bloody minded, they even turn down an offer to take Lennox out of the country, but no they just wanted poor Lennox dead, well I will also fight to make sure everyone around me keeps away from the mean city of Belfast.
It is so suspicious that they would not allow anyone to visit him nor would they let his family collect his remains. Their actions are suspect...as if they were hiding something. The people of Belfast should call for an investigation and fire the lot of them for the murderous creatures they are. There were many citizens there who were just as upset as we are over their actions. Can['t believe they can just take a dog from his owner on the spot. Found another incident where they did the...

Found another incident where they did the same thing to a man walking his dog on the street. Seized him right there. I would NEVER want to live in a place where they can do that without cause or provocation. USA citizens take notice. Stop BSLs or it could happen to YOU!
Craig Kleber Money is the only thing these people will ever understand. The BCC definitely have NO HEARTS or SOULS!!! They are a total disgrace to the HUMAN race. May they all get 1000 times what they deserve. They will answer one day to a Higher Power. Now they have caused more pain & suffering to the animal loving Irish too, because the BCC also killed tourism which Belfast & Northern Ireland desperately depend on. It's called Karma.
Craig Kleber Like that idea.
This is HOW you get back at everyone living in this country that didn't try hard enough, as well as the govt. But you have to send emails to the govt in charge of this, saying "I have changed my traveling plans to IReland/UK because of LENNOX" say LENNOX>>> Lennox is in a better place... God Bless him...
JUST AN OUTRAGE! the way they described Lennox is absurd! NO WORDS! I AM NEVER GOING TO IRELAND!
This was Northern Ireland. Not Ireland. 2 different countries.
i thought about that after i wrote it. it figures. i dont think a lot of people realize that based what i have read on the facebook sites for lennox. thanks for pointing it out.
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.
that needs to be spread around. people are mistaking the 2 all over the place with their comments.
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...

^ireland is in the uk.
IRELAND IS NOT IN ENGLAND..YOU GET TO IRELAND BY FERRY BOAT OR FLY THERE IN A PLANE...
Sarah May IRELAND IS NOT IN ENGLAND... YOU GET THERE BY FERRY BOAT..OR FLY THERE IN A PLANE... IRELAND IS NOT IN ENGLAND.....
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!
lol :p some people I tell ya! should have payed attention in school...
Tyisha Shaia Ireland is not in the UK, Northern Ireland is. What do they teach you in School??
lol I must of went to a school of no knowledge
Rebecca Owens it's implied that i was referring to northern ireland since this occurred in belfast..........
