Magistrates decided Staffordshire bull terrier KC can be taken off doggy death row and given back to owner John Roberts, from Druids Heath.Any compensation?
Mr Roberts was ordered to pay £85 costs, but no compensation, after admitting owning a dog not under control.No, of course not. Only for the State.
Yesterday, 67-year-old Kath Abbotts, present when her Jack Russell was killed in Druids Heath Park, said: “They should’ve put the dog down. It’s now free to bump into other dogs.
“What happened keeps on coming back, yet I haven’t had any say in the matter. I’m the one who has lost out – I’ve lost my pet. It cost me more to have Tilly put down than he paid in court costs. It cost me £98.”Well, I suppose John Roberts needs every penny, since he states the dog ‘lives in a house with six children’ (not to mention other animals). He must have a fantastic job, to be able to afford them…
