Woman admits beating dog with rabbit carcass


A former Committee member for the Gordon Setter Field Trial Society has admitted behaving inappropriately at the said Society’s Breed Stake on 25th July 2008.

The Kennel Club’s Rule A42 disciplinary case was brought against Mrs F. Toulson of High Peak, Derbyshire following the incident last year where she harshly handled and mistreated her dog by repeatedly striking it with a dead rabbit and then stuck the dead animal under the dog’s collar.
‘The Committee noted that Mrs Toulson has admitted the complaint and apologised unreservedly, acknowledging that the conduct was inappropriate and unacceptable. It was also noted that Mrs Toulson has resigned from her position on the Committee for the Gordon Setter Field Trial Society,’ said a KC spokesperson.

The Committee have imposed the following penalties upon Mrs Toulson: To warn her to her future conduct; to censure her; to disqualify her from exhibiting at, taking part in, attending and/or having any connection with any event licensed by the club; to disqualify her from acting as an Officer or serving on the committee of any canine society; to disqualify her from taking part in the management of any event licensed by the club; to disqualify her from judging at any event licensed by the club.

The suspensions and disqualifications came into effect on 6th January 2009 and will last for a period of two years.
