PLEA TO SAVE Family Dogs – Tyson And Diesel From EUTHANASIA

Comments Off on PLEA TO SAVE Family Dogs – Tyson And Diesel From EUTHANASIA

“OMG…Please do not let this be another case like poor Lennox; R.I.P. Dogs are only viscous if they have been trained that way, not all pit bulls belong to thugs who use them to fight or as weapons & intimidation! These pit bulls are loving, loyal family pets, well loved & missed. They have been condemned, having done no wrong, it’s purely because of the way they look. Please, take 2 seconds to sign the petition at the link below; you will be helping to save their lives!

Tyson (3 Yr. old) and Diesel (7 Mo. old) were unfairly removed from their home and loving family.

Tyson & Diesel Need Help – Don’t let this be another ‘Lennox’!!

They have never injured anyone or had any prior complaints, yet they were deemed vicious based on the opinion and prejudice of a police officer and the next door neighbor who stated to the owners when they moved in, that he hates Pit Bulls.

The same neighbour who would hit the chain linked fence from his yard that divide’s the two properties with a rake and yell at them in attempt to scare the dogs. However, the neighbor has six small dogs and multiple cats of his own running around.

In Highland Twp., there is no type of ban against Pit Bulls that would rationalize removing them from their loving home.

On July 26th, 2012 the elderly next door neighbor called the Oakland County Sheriff’s Dept. claiming that two Pitt Bulls where in his yard and “nipped at his legs”, the neighbour stated that he waved them away with a watering can. When the Sheriff and Animal control deputies arrived the neighbour was outside.

Tyson and Diesel where in their own yard and were barking, as any breed of dog would do to strangers approaching at 9:00 p.m. The animal control Deputy tried to snare them, but they kept their distance 6-7 feet away and were unable to catch them.

Shortly after that the owner arrived home, unaware that either of his dogs was out of the fenced in back yard. Tyson was curled up in the corner of the neighbor’s yard shaking and scared. The owner picked Tyson up and put him in his house as directed by the deputy. Diesel was in the back yard, inside the fence so the owner walked through the house and put Diesel inside too.

There is not a gate leading to the back yard so we are unsure how Diesel was still in there. It is believed that Tyson possibly jumped the fence by using a truck cap that was recently placed in the back yard. Diesel is still a puppy and much smaller than Tyson, so it is unlikely he did the same due to the distance between the cap and the fence.

The owner was given a misdemeanor ticket for Possession of a Vicious/Dangerous Animal and told to appear in court. These loving so call “Vicious” dogs were permitted to reside in their owner’s possession for 10 days, without incident preceding the court hearing for the ticket.

During that hearing on August 6th, 2012 both dogs were remanded by Judge Bondy to be turned over to Oakland County Animal Shelter within 24 hours, where they have been kept in small individual cages 24/7 for the last 17 days.

It was never specified exactly what it was that determined they were vicious other than they barked at them. This is a heartbreaking tragedy for all that know and love these sweet dogs, that they may be condemned to death simply because of a misconception of their breed and from other careless pet owners who have caused them to be labeled as dangerous.

Tyson and Diesel have spent countless hours interacting with children, cats and dogs of all sizes. They have never displayed aggressive behaviour in any way. They are well trained, socialized, obedient and most of all gentle dogs. They love to play and swim at the beach where they have been in contact with various people including strangers without any problems.

They are extremely well mannered dogs; their owner has trained them from puppy’s to allow anyone to take things from them. All the owners, family and friends want is their family members back, but they are in grave danger of being euthanized in the next week!

With heavy hearts, we are begging for mercy for them!!/TysonandDiesel

Facing jail: The yob who drowned his pet dog in the bath because he was skint

Comments Off on Facing jail: The yob who drowned his pet dog in the bath because he was skint

A father-to-be who drowned his pet dog in the bath because he could not afford to have him put down is facing six months in jail.

Robert Oram

Robert Oram, 25, held Staffordshire bull terrier Tyson under the water until he died at the flat he shared with ­pregnant girlfriend Emma Barker and her seven-year-old son, a court heard.

Oram, who is on benefits, then buried the animal in nearby woods.

Kevin McCole, prosecuting for the RSPCA, said the couple decided to drown the dog because they were both on benefits and believed they could not afford to have him put down.

He said a postmortem on Tyson showed bruising as a result of the “force applied to the back of the skull” as he was held under.

He said: “It is reasonable that the dog would have sought to fight when put under the water and been caused to suffer in the moments prior to losing its life.”

Oram claimed he only held Tyson under water for two minutes and that the dog did not struggle, Corby magistrates were told.

Mr McCole told the court: “He said, ‘I wasn’t sure he was dead so I unplugged the bath, went into the living room and had a little cry’.”

Oram then went back to the bathroom, wrapped the dog up in plastic bags and waited for Ms Barker’s son to get home from school “so he could say goodbye”.

Mr McCole added:“He told inspectors he then took the animal into the woods to ‘give him a little funeral’.”

The court heard when he was confronted by RSPCA officers he denied Tyson was dead but later admitted the killing and led them to the grave.

Alistair Evans, mitigating, said Tyson “became more ­aggressive” in the nine months Oram owned him, which he was concerned about.

“He was well looked after during the time he was with Mr Oram,” Mr Evans added.

The court heard Oram, of Corby, ­Northants, has previous convictions for violence.

He admitted causing unnecessary suffering to Tyson and faces up to six months in jail or a fine of up to £20,000.

Ms Barker has denied failing to prevent unnecessary suffering to an animal and will face a separate trial.

Thug tortured and killed his pet dog

Comments Off on Thug tortured and killed his pet dog

“OMG…these thugs were off to easily, I hope their names are burned into the minds of everyone who lives around them, & they are forever reminded of their heinous crime!”

AN animal charity is warning of the dangers of using the internet to sell pets after a dog was tortured and killed just days after its new owner bought it.

Sean Deakin, aged 19, hit Staffordshire Bull Terrier Tyson 20 times with a hammer before stabbing him with a knife at Birchfield Avenue, Atherton, magistrates were told.

He then dumped the pet in a wheelie bin outside.

Deakin, who now lives in Greenhill Road, Wakefield, was jailed for 20 weeks at Manchester Magistrates Court after being found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal and failing to provide proper and necessary vet care.

RSPCA inspector Danni Jennings said: “What this dog went through was absolutely horrific.

“The court heard that it was hit with a hammer around 20 times then, three hours later, when Deakin noticed it had urinated, he chased the dog around the flat, kicking and punching it.

“When they got to the kitchen he picked up a knife and stabbed it. Deakin then went out, returning shortly before Tyson died of his injuries, around eight hours after the initial attack. The body was found dumped in a wheelie bin outside.

“Tyson was tortured. He was an innocent animal who had done nothing wrong but to have the misfortune of finding himself in the care of this couple.”

 The dog was being advertised for sale for £50 by Deakin’s girlfriend, Sarah Tame, aged 19, on a listings website site at the time it was killed.

Insp Jennings added: “I hope this case highlights the danger of websites where pets are given away or sold and that people think twice before using them.

“This is an area where no checks are being made.

“Responsible owners should not use these forums to acquire or pass on unwanted animals and people should only take on animals from reputable breeders or rescue organisations.

Tame was given a 12-month community order including 150 hours of unpaid work and was ordered to pay a £200 fine.

She was banned from keeping any animals for 10 years, and another dog was taken from her.

She had previously pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to Tyson by failing to provide proper and necessary vet care following his stabbing.

Teenager, battered dog with hammer 20 times and stabbed it through chest before leaving home to sign on at the JobCentre

Comments Off on Teenager, battered dog with hammer 20 times and stabbed it through chest before leaving home to sign on at the JobCentre

  • Sean Deakin had only owned the dog for a few days
  • Staffordshire bull terrier Tyson took eight hours to die
  • Deakin offered the court no explanation for the abuse

    Cruel: Sean Deakin, 19, battered his dog with a hammer before stabbing it in the chest and leaving it to die

A 19-year-old faces jail after he battered his new dog with a hammer, stabbed it in the chest and left it to die in agony.

Unemployed Sean Deakin left the male Staffordshire bull terrier dying on the kitchen floor of his flat while he went to the JobCentre to sign on.

The cruel youth returned to find the dog – which he had owned only a few days – lying immobile and vomiting.

In all, the dog – named Tyson – took eight agonising hours to die. A witness to the attack alerted RSPCA officers, who found Tyson’s body in a wheelie bin outside Deakin’s home four days later.

Deakin was arrested and charged with three counts of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

He denied the offences but was found guilty at Manchester magistrates court and now faces up to six months behind bars.

The court heard Deakin and his girlfriend Sarah Tame, 19, had taken ownership of Tyson just days before the attack after answering an advert on classifieds website Gumtree in May last year.

At around 3am, he struck the dog around 20 times on the head with a hammer. No explanation was given in court. Three hours later, Deakin woke and noticed the dog had urinated on his bed.

He chased it around the kitchen, trapped it between his legs and stabbed in it the chest with a six-inch knife he had grabbed from a drawer.

Deakin then went to sign on, returning shortly before Tyson died at 2pm. Inspector Danielle Jennings, of the RSPCA, said the attack was the worst case she had ever encountered.

‘This was an absolutely heinous crime against an innocent animal who had done nothing wrong other than suffer the misfortune of being taken into that flat,’ she said.

‘In four years as an inspector this is without a doubt the worst attack on an animal I have encountered.

‘Almost as soon as Tyson arrived in the flat a pattern of abuse which amounted to torture began.

‘It is a concern that animals are being so easily given away online, seemingly without any checks.’

Chairman of the Bench Hugh Keachie told Deakin the starting point for such crimes was a custodial sentence.

He said: ‘As a bench this offence absolutely appalled us and we need to make sure you understand how serious this is.’

Tame pleaded guilty to one count of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal at an earlier hearing for not seeking veterinary attention for Tyson.

Deakin, formerly of Birchfield Avenue, Atherton, Wigan, will be sentenced at Manchester magistrates court on June 28.

Dog owner facing jail after his Rhodesian Ridgeback jumped over garden fence and savaged boy’s face

Comments Off on Dog owner facing jail after his Rhodesian Ridgeback jumped over garden fence and savaged boy’s face

  • Rhodesian Ridgeback leaves six-year-old schoolboy with serious facial injuries
  • South African breed has been used to hunt lions, but is unrestricted in this country
  • Young victim has plastic surgery, but family fear he will never get back to normal

The owner of a Rhodesian Ridgeback called Tyson is facing jail after the dog savaged a six-year-old schoolboy.

Horror: Six-year-old Erfan Ali after he was savaged by an out of control dog

Erfan Ali was scarred for life when the neighbour’s pet jumped a four foot high wooden fence into his family’s garden.

The Cardiff schoolboy was helping his mother, Monowara Ali, and sister Masudah, 12, bring the washing in when the dog landed and pounced on him.

Mrs Ali, 37, fled into the house with her son but was unable to stop the dog forcing its way into the kitchen and continuing the attack.

The six-year-old suffered deep cuts to both sides of his face and the attack continued until dog owner Kevin Large, 27, managed to drag the animal away.

Large, 27, from Gabalfa, Cardiff admitted failing to control the animal at Cardiff Crown Court and will be sentenced next month.

Erfan’s dad, Dilwar, 38, said: ‘The dog was really attacking my boy badly – it bit his right and left cheeks and his left hand has been damaged as well. ‘There was blood everywhere.’

After the incident in September last year Erfan was taken to University Hospital, Cardiff and then transferred to a special unit in Swansea.

Mr Dilwar, a restaurant owner, said: ‘The plastic surgeons took the decisions to operate as soon as possible. ‘My son will be scarred on his face and will need future operations.

‘The scars are not just physical – Erfan cries at night, he doesn’t want to sleep alone and he feels safer in school because there are big gates and other children around him.

Recovery: The six-years-old has needed plastic surgery to try and fix the scarring to his face.

‘He is extremely scared of dogs and doesn’t trust any animals. I don’t want this to happen to other children.’

Since the attack the Ali family have moved to a new part of the city in a bid to put the incident behind them.  Speaking at the time of the attack Large said: ‘I am just feeling really bad, I am just devastated over the situation.

‘I climbed over the fence because I could hear screaming and I could see the dog in next door’s hallway. ‘He was barking so I just quickly grabbed him. I didn’t know what had happened. I saw the little boy and the blood on his face. ‘You can imagine what I thought then – it was just panic.’

Tyson has been put down since the attack. The dog was a Rhodesian Ridgeback, a South African breed of dog known for its bravery. They are also known as African Lion Hounds as they have been used to hunt lions, but are not banned in the UK.

Large who insisted Tyson had been ‘a lovely dog’ admitted the charge under the dangerous dogs act. The hearing was told Erfan’s parents will address to court during sentencing to describe the impact of the attack.

Judge Huw Davies released Large on bail but warned he could face custody. He told him: ‘All options remain open’.
