A very sad day for the Save Lennox Campaign

I have just found out that the ruling by the Northern Ireland Chief Justice has gone against Lennox. The latest official release from the Save Lennox Campaign is as follows and it breaks my heart.

12th June 2012, Lennox’s Family Will Release A Statement In Due Course Once They Have Had Time To Absorb Today’s Ruling By Chief Justice Girvan. The Family Kindly Ask All Supporters To Remain Calm And Dignified As Always In Their Response To Today’s Sad And Very Wrong Decision By The Northern Ireland Chief Justice. Thank You.

The Belfast City Council and North Ireland Justice System should hang their head in shame, this is a sad, sad day for Lennox and his family and for dog lovers all over the world. What hope do responsible dog owners have when unjust and ineffective laws such as BSL exist? Lennox has spent 2 years locked up in conditions described as inhumane, experiencing the pain of a poorly treated skin condition and judged as dangerous dog by people lacking in the necessary expertise and who are using physical methods of control no longer accepted as effective by dog trainers and behaviourists around the globe. Where is the justice and where on earth have the USPCA been hiding because if the treatment of Lennox isn’t considered as cruel then what is?

Yes, I am angry and disgusted in this outcome, not only for Lennox and his suffering but for all dogs suffering when they should be living happy, healthy and carefree lives with people who love and care for them.

      I hope it does come back to bite them, there is much work still being done in an effort to get Lennox released to Victoria Stilwell and taken to a bull-breed friendly destination in the US. At the moment it doesn’t look good and it appears that the family will not even have to the chance to say good-bye to Lennox which is appalling.

        My feeling is, from the pictures of Lennox in captivity, looking so pitiful physically, that he is probably dead & that is why they do not release him to ousiders. The woman in the picture with him seems to be gloating at the fact that she is being pictured with him. The same woman who claimed he was dangerous & she was afraid of him? Also, what needs to be investigated is why he was kept in such horrid conditions. So inhumane. A Nation is judged by how it treats its animals. Belfast has failed the test. One day GOD will remove ALL animals because we have failed in appreciating all that they are & do for us. The ultimate sacrifice being FEEDING/NOURISHING US. Being our companions. Helping the less fortunate physically. And bringing us so much joy. And now this!!!!!! And in 2012!!!!
        Seems like judges just don’t know how to be judges. In every sphere of life they fail us.

        Belfast has failed the test and given the council’s steadfast refusal to show Lennox and his family any respect or compassion it does make me wonder whether they put him to sleep long ago.
