The Oxford-educated QC who was in charge of the dog that savaged Freddie the seal says she has spoken to the police and the RSPCA who told her no crime has been committed.
On Tuesday, her lawyers said she made contact with police after the attack and was referred to the RSPCA, and was told no offence had occurred.
How long after the attack? Because, as reported that morning, the police were either unaware or this, or lying:
Earlier, the Met Police told MailOnline that officers were investigating the death and 'looking to identify witnesses and to speak to the owner of the dog involved'.
And...why is she so sure there's no case to answer? Are there no penalties for this sort of thing?
The person in control of a dog that chases or attacks farm animals can be fined up to £1,000, or £2,500 if the offence was deliberate. Similar fines apply to attacks on wild animals.
Perhaps it's something that never gets applied, because it's hard to prove?
...earlier this year a dog owner was fined £500 after their Irish setter puppy mauled a deer in Richmond Park.
So her confidence would seem misplaced. Wouldn't it? In a fair world, anyway.
