Lords refuse Dino appeal

AS WE go to press we learn that the House of Lords Judicial Committee has refused the appeal to save the life of Dino, the five year German Shepherd Dog.

The appeal was lodged just after Christmas by well-known solicitor Trevor Cooper who has been handling the case of five year-old GSD 'Dino' since his initial appeal against destruction.
Dino was sentenced to death by Northampton Magistrates early last year after his owner Carol Lamont pleaded guilty to a minor biting incident under Section 3 of the Dangerous Dogs Act, arising from an incident when Dino got into a fight with another dog in January of that year and the other dog's owner was nipped in the ensuing fracas.

Following two High Court appeals, Dino's case was then referred to the House of Lords Judicial Office just after Christmas to see whether permission would be granted for an appeal to the House of Lords itself.
