Rottweilers Posh and Becks have been spared a death sentence by a court – despite the pets attacking another dog.Ah, yes. This case.
…magistrates did not approve the destruction order at a hearing yesterday. Instead they ordered ice cream salesman Hansell, of Swan Bank, Talke, to pay £214 to cover bulldog Harry’s vet’s bill, a further £300 to Mr Pulizzi for loss of earnings and £100 to the victim for his injuries.
Following the case, father-of-three Hansell says the money is secondary to saving the lives of his pets, which are named after celebrity couple David and Victoria Beckham.Well, he would say that, wouldn't he. Besides, he’s not paying. We are.
Hansell, who was also handed a 12-month conditional discharge, will pay £10 per fortnight to settle the compensation bill after the court heard he was on benefits following the collapse of his business.*sighs*
He was also told to keep the dogs on a lead in all public places and install two barriers to keep them on his property.
District Judge Andrew Jones said: “My concern is whether the dogs will cause more issues and it is agreed the steps put in place will ensure no future problems will arise.”Will they? Gosh! Judge Jones can apparently predict the future!
