Why this petition matters

Started by Emma Douglas

Recently there has been a lot of media coverage on the tragedy of Coco the dachshund being killed in the dog attack. 

Hero may be PTS (put to sleep) because of the negligence of Cocos owners. 

- Coco and 2 other dogs escaped their yard, and ran to the park where Hero and his owner were walking. 
- Hero was on lead walking with his family when 3 dogs ran up and attacked him
- 3 UNLEASHED dogs ran up and attacked on leash Hero. 
-Hero's owner was doing the right thing, walking her dog on a leash in a leash only area. 
- Coco, A dog half the size of Hero (as well as 2 other dogs) attacked Hero, Coco was a small breed and it is inevitable that in an attack a larger dog would cause extensive damage to a small dog. 
- Cocos owner has blasted her fake story on news and social media, vilifying Hero and his owner, and thankfully the true story as well as CCTV footage has emerged showing what really happened. Coco was not being walked as owner first stated, Coco ESCAPED and attacked another dog!! CCTV link will be at bottom of this petition. 
- Cocos owner has changed her story so many times now to try to look innocent and vilify Hero, and that speaks volumes. RIP Coco, and condolences to her family, but lying to sentence another dog to death is just disgusting.

Witness has come forward on social media and stated that the 3 dogs in fact did attack Hero, and that the fault was not Hero. 

My aim here is to urge the Cardinia Council to NOT put this poor dog to sleep, This is a tragic incident but Hero was NOT the instigator, CCTV footage has shown what really happened!! As well as witnesses stating this was not the fault of Hero or his owner. Hero was defending HIMSELF and HIS FAMILY against 3 dogs attacking him. 

Let's not make an already heartbreaking tragedy worse by putting a dog to death for defending himself and his family.

Confirmed victory
