JUDGMENT COMING IN HOURS FOR DOG SEIZED BASED ON BREED-SPECIFIC LEGISLATION - “The court will decide if there can be another appeal in the case to free Lennox or if will be put to death because several dog wardens with their own agenda decided he looks like a pit bull.”
On May 19, 2010 in the U.K., Lennox the dog was taken from his home by Belfast City Council officials for “looking like a pit bull.” There were no complaints or incidents of any kind which prompted the seizure. For the past two years, Lennox has been isolated from his family in the pound. Any hour now, the Court of Appeal Civil at the Royal Courts of Justice will issue a judgment, as explained by the examiner.com:
Judgment day for Lennox, the seven-year-old mixed breed dog held in captivity and secrecy on death row for the past two years because of the way he looks, will be held Tuesday, June 12 and the eyes of the world will be focused on Belfast…
Let’s hope the judgment comes out in Lennox’s favor so he can continue his legal fight. He deserves to be freed after 2 years apart from his home. Click here for the “Save Lennox” website and here for the Facebook page. Please share this story.
