A new case of arbitrariness of the Danish police shows once again that the law is being abused.
In sight of the owner's 14-year-old son the dog, named Cora, was literally torn. Cora is a friendly 10-year-old German Shepherd. She is well educated and a beloved family pet. Cora is also the best friend of the 14-year-old boy.
What happened?
During a walk in August 2012 Cora was attacked by a dachshund. Her owner stepped in immediately, however, Cora struggled against the dachshund and has inflicted superficial injuries. These injuries were compounded and treated with Chlorhexedin to avoid infection! This was confirmed by the attending veterinarian to the police. The vet's bill took Cora's owner. The dachshound's injuries healed quickly.
Nevertheless, the owner of the dachshound filed a complaint against Cora's family and 7 months after this incident the police seized Cora and brought her to a shelter up to the decission on her possible euthanasia.
An euthanasia would violate the Danish dog law. According to § 6, paragraph 5 of the Danish Dogs Act and the interpretation of the lawyers of the police, which is both judicial and executive power, is a "serious bite wound" defined that it always is a serious bite injury when another dog or human being must be treated medically and wounds must be sewn.
THEREFORE, WE DEMAND CORA'S IMMEDIATE RELEASE!

euthanasia is totally out of the question. Sometimes small dogs can be very aggressive. I have seen it with 2 small dogs. One a terrier aggravate sweet and gentle Lab. The other a mini dachshund attacking a German Shepherd.v

TY Katka. Noted and signed. Cora should never have been taken. She is 10 yrs. old and was just defending herself. In fact, in reading about breeds who are known for aggression it is the dachshund that comes up number 1. The reason most people aren't concerned about it is that they are small so they can't do much damage to people. This case is very unfair.

My beautiful and infinitely kindly old German Shepherd dog often got attacked by little aggressive dogs - it seems common. Fortunately I was always there and nothing escalated - though I was always worried that something might happen and the aggressive little dog's owner would make a complaint. (Mind you, one very nice Jack Russell terrier was a good friend of my dog's - he had been brought up properly by his owners and it was a joy to see them playing). I have infinite sympathy with the owners of the nice GSD here - this is racism that is making the Danish Authorities act this way. Signed.

Noted and signed - I just fail to understand how people hand over their animals without fighting these deranged bastards - who just hands over their animal - not in this lifetime or the next would I relent in any way, I would rather die fighting to protect my animals. They need to hand back this dog and if not, people should go in and make it clear that they will not stand for this and remove Cora and give her back to her owners. Who makes up these ludicrous laws anyway - they do not have a right!!!
