Some of Our Recent Successful Cases
DANGEROUSLY OUT OF CONTROL CHARGES DROPPED
Our Client went to his local park to walk his dog. He took his dog into the playground area.
The dog ran away and bit two toddlers, causing injury. Our Client was charged with being in possession of a dog dangerously out of control.
We obtained the CCTV footage which showed that our Client had entered the park with his dog on a lead but it must have accidentally snapped causing the dog to suddenly run away.
We explained this to the Prosecution and to the Court and after reviewing the evidence, the Prosecution dropped all the charges before the Trial date at Sevenoaks Magistrates Court and the dog was returned to our Client.
ACQUITTAL OF DANGEROUSLY OUT OF CONTROL CHARGE AT CAMBERWELL GREEN MAGISTRATES COURT
Our Client had owned an American bull terrier for four years. A neighbour had approached the dog and the dog had bitten her, causing her to fall over as well. The neighbour had a clear bite mark to her leg.
We took a detailed witness statement from our Client who explained that his dog had become scared after the neighbour actually fell on top of the dog in the first place.
Our Client was found not guilty at his Trial at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court and his dog was returned to him.
Both owners were extremely relieved, not only for themselves but also for their dogs who had faced Destruction Orders, and the effect the dogs’ losses would have had on their families.
