Lennox the dog was murdered after his family tried to get him back for 2 years. There is no evidence that this dog was a threat in any way. Belfast City Council must be made accountable and answer for this heinous crime!!

I'll sign and send this on. I'm sick to my stomach over this. If I start to cry, I won't stop....but the tears are falling anyway. That poor, poor innocent, lovely creature. What a cruel, harsh world we live in. How primitive are we to the core of our beings? A precious life lost; a war for justice rages onward.

From Victoria Stillwell Positively:

"Victoria joined host Wendy Austin on BBC Radio Ulster and sparred with Pat McCarthy, the head of Belfast City Council's (BCC) Environmental Health Committee, just hours after the BCC destroyed Lennox, an American Bulldog/Labrador mix with no history of aggression or behavior issues. The dog was confiscated 2 years ago due not to his aggressive nature, but rather simply because his bodily dimensions fit the profile of supposedly dangerous dogs under Northern Ireland's breed-specific legislation (BSL). Despite pleas from millions around the world, Victoria's offer to rehome Lennox outside the UK, and personal intervention from Northern Ireland's First Minister, the BCC insisted on euthanizing this dog, claiming that they were merely following the law, although they fought tooth and nail to achieve the flawed ruling in the first place."

signed already. I am heartbroken as I know the rest of you are. While the truth lies buried for the end, truth always does. Animals have much to fear from us and the scum (Belfast council) has proven that point nicely. I don't believe Lennox was alive and they had to cover their asses. I'm with Penny....sending them all the bad vibes that I can muster. Please let's not forget Lennox after day..making him yesterday's news..but let the war against these bastards rage on. Ginger and Michelle for the fwd

This dog did nothing. People like that just like to be cruel and it makes them happy when they are doing something horrible like they did to Lennox. They like violence and harming innocent creatures... It's sad that we live in a world with such people.

RIP Lennox.

I am ashamed to be human... We created these "dangerous breeds" and now we are punishing them for being born.

They're so fond of blowing things up in Northern Ireland, it's about time someone blew the BCC up. Bastards. S&N.

I would almost swear they did this just to dig their heels in because so many people tried to get them to keep him alive. do not get me wrong-all that we did was the right thing to do; it just means they are a bunch of^&^%*%$^who have no compassion and their stubborn pride was more important than doing what was right.
