A court has been unable to put a control order on a large dog which was dangerously out of control when it attacked a smaller dog in front of children outside an Ipswich primary school.Because of general justice system incompetence?
Ipswich magistrates were going to consider the move during a case involving Kimberley Hatfield, of Aster Road, Ipswich, but they were told Rocky, a mixed breed, had been sold to a new owner. As the owner was not in court an order could not be made.Ah.
Hatfield and her partner Glen Tilley had only had the dog for around three weeks. Mrs Harper said the previous owner warned them Rocky “could go hyper”.Why would you take on (buy?) a dog like that? And then sell it on?
Who buys these mutts, and why?
A community resolution was offered to Hatfield, which would resolve the matter with the owner of the other dog without bringing a case to court. Both parties accepted on the basis Hatfield would pay the £281.60 vet’s bill for Star to treat the injuries Rocky caused.
However, no money was paid.Well, I'm shocked. No doubt they have an excuse?
Mr Tilley added compensation had not been paid as his partner had been pregnant and they had forgotten as they were worried about their baby.Why are such people allowed to breed?
