ONE OF the best-known opponents of Breed Specific Legislation in the form of the Dangerous Dogs Act has decided to step down from the front-line battle after 11 years as being the best known ‘dog defender’ in court cases.
Trevor Cooper, the solicitor who became involved in a DDA case purely by chance and eventually made canine cases his primary line of work, will take up a new position as Primary Solicitor for the Environment Agency in North East England. Trevor will prosecute anyone accused of polluting rivers, dumping industrial waste or chemicals etc. all over the country but will be based in Leeds.
All involved in the world of dogs will join us in wishing Trevor well in his new post; tributes to his work will appear in next week’s OUR DOGS.
