A “drunken” women was said to have goaded a large French mastiff dog to turn on the police when armed officers were called to reports it had tried to attack a man in a Burnley street.They should have shot it. And Gorrie.
The court was told the animal, a rescue dog, was being fostered by Wendy Ann Gorrie (44) who refused police instructions to control it.
Gorrie claims she had had a fall-out with neighbours and the dog had reacted and been protective because it thought she was under threat. She was arrested for being drunk and disorderly during the incident.But they didn’t shoot it.
The dog was eventually tranquillised by a police vet (Ed: wtf..?) and taken to kennels. It will not be put down as its owner Lee Nuttall was said by police to be a diligent owner. Officers did not request a destruction order.A diligent owner doesn’t let a drunken chav ‘foster’ his dog.
The defendant, who is on benefits, was fined £80, with £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge. She was not banned from keeping or owning dogs.Well, won’t the fact that she’s on benefits mean she can’t afford to..? *innocent face*
