Maybe The Owner Should Have A Contingent Destruction Order Too?

Dog behaviour expert David Ryan, who said that having observed Mist he would not have had her rehomed in a house with young children, but her reactions were quite normal.
He said: “It was completely apparent to me that the dog did not like close social contact with children.”
The court in Prestatyn heard the animal, who has gone back to search and rescue work, would have ‘been under stress’ by being restrained close to children ‘when his normal instinct would have been to move away.’
Wait, what?
Little Rose had gone for a walk on Graig Fawr where Shorrock often took Mist for training. The girl approached Mist and Shorrock held the dog’s collar as the toddler patted her on the head before the attack.
Shorrock was fined £900 and ordered to pay Rose £1,500 in compensation. He must also pay court costs of £440. A contingency destruction order remains in place.
Sadly, only on the dog

'The court in Prestatyn heard the animal...would have been under stress by being restrained close to children when his normal instinct would have been to move away.’

Given that shameless try-on, the case should have been referred to Crown court for a more 'appropriate' sentence.

One of the worst 'contingency sanctions' extended to plod was that for the mad Welsh Weddell. Bailed on uxoricide after his Fed lawyer made the case there was no certainty he would blast the principal witness against him, into the next world.

"Given that shameless try-on, the case should have been referred to Crown court for a more 'appropriate' sentence."

I think they are just as capable of falling for tall tales, frankly...

"You and me both, dog"

Amen!
