Recall the Belfast City Council

    1. Deborah Maddox
    2. Petition by

      Deborah Maddox

      Chicago, IL

The Belfast Dog Warden's office is responsible for the removal of Lennox, a family dog ripped from his responsible owner's home. They kept this poor soul, a beloved companion dog to a young girl, hostage for 2 years. Then, on July 11 (some believe much earlier in direct defiance of a court ordered stay) they murdered Lennox despite a global outcry and offers of sanctuary. Even then, when they could seem to show no more indifference, this group denied the family a last visit and the right to claim their family member's body. 

This illegal and heartless episode is only the tip of an ugly iceberg. Inadequate medical conditions, horrible concrete enclosures, sawdust on concrete floors and woefully filthy stalls warrant the closure of each and every so-called shelter facility in Belfast, the re-homing of all inmates jailed there and the recall/dismissal of the entire council.

    9. Belfast City Council Remains Solidly Smug

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZz2V0aCXmI&sns=fb This video is heartbreaking to watch. But it gives solid proof that the fairy tale created of Lennox the vicious pit was an outright illegal effort to snatch him from his familiy. Where is the dangerous dog in this video? Breed specific legislation puts the power to ruin lives in the hands of, in this case, ignorant barbarians.

      The BCC remains steadfast in their claim that Lennox was put down to "protect" the public. Tell them we don't need their kind of protection. They did not allow his family to visit in the two years he was held hostage. They did not allow them to be with and comfort Lennox in his last minutes. They did not allow the family to claim or view his body, his ashes. They refused to give his companion, a young disabled girl, his collar as a remembrance. One BCC member even had the audacity to claim that he understood the family's pain because he had a dog. Unthinkable.

      Below, Duke needs you.

      Because the Belfast City Council over stepped their boundaries, did a DNA test and KNEW Lennox was not a pit bull nor was he dangerous. They abused their power and act like they can change the laws to their delight. They are arrogant and need to be stopped.

      I can't imagine how the family must feel. Not only losing their beloved pet but not even being allowed to say goodbye That is just cruel.
