Lennox, a six year old American Bulldog / Labrador cross, was killed by Belfast City Council under the provisions of the Dangerous Dogs Act, despite the fact that he has never attacked or bitten anyone, and he doesn't fit the DNA profile of any designated breed.
Lennox was a service dog to a sick child, and was loved by his human guardians.
Lightfoot was a key witness in the case. She told the learned Judge who heard the Council's application for a Destruction Order that she was terrified of Lennox, yet images posted to the Internet show her petting and cuddling him. Whilst opinions and emotions vary from person to person, nobody will cuddle a dog they claim to be scared of. Therefore, she has lied to the Court.
Her testimony was given under oath. This constitutes perjury, which carries a sentence of up to seven years imprisonment. Her testimony materially affected the outcome of the case. She should be prosecuted for perjury.
