Lennox conspiracy put together?
This post will be less upbeat than usual!
It won’t contain any graphic language or images, but still I do realize reading news about mistreated animals isn’t the most fun thing to do.
However I felt the need to share. If you do decide to read this, at least I reached out to someone!
I read a follow-up article on Lennox today and it made me sick to the stomach.
Maybe you’ve been following the Lennox-story, if not you’ve probably seen it popping up on the web. It’s been a long journey over these past two years.
To sum it all up in one bold sentence, in my eyes what happened was legalized animal cruelty.
First very quickly, the history as I understood it:
In May 2010 Belfast City Council Dog Wardens came to Lennox’ home unannounced with the PSNI, for no reason. The dog hadn’t harassed, not even bothered people in the least.
The wardens then told the PSNI everything was fine, that they could leave, and proceeded to have a friendly talk with Lennox’ family.
Before they knew it the wardens were taking measurements of the dog, and deciding he was a Pit Bull, which is a banned breed in Northern Ireland. The family didn’t have a choice but to give Lennox up. Even though he actually wasn’t a Pit Bull according to DNA tests, but a Lab/American Bull Dog mix. They took him away from the family and into custody.
From here on out the family would be fighting for 2 years to get their dog back. However it would be in vain, they didn’t get to see their pooch anymore, not even when he died the 11th of July, and not even the body after. This is what got a lot of people wondering.. why the secrecy?
The reason he was put to death was that “he had a severe personality dissorder”.
Who came to that conclusion? A city-council expert. Not a dog expert, a city politician.
He does look extremely agressive, licking the warden…..
The reason this whole situation is so scary, is because his death sentence wasn’t based on logics, it came out of thin air, and for some reason, it was legal as well!
I could compare this whole situation to me saying that a random person on the street “has Latin American attributes in his appearance, and he should be seized”. After that he would have to be put to death “because there’s a possibility that he’ll be be aggressive in the future. Seeing as all Latin Americans have this personality trait. No questions asked, no arguments valid.”
Racist? Yeah, exactly!
How sick would that be!
Lennox was held in captivity in a secret location, probably along with other “dangerous breeds”. Pictures and statements surfaced but the informants were never identified and so it could never be proven.
But people are now teaming up and putting the pieces together. Informants are being identified and pictures being spread!
As I said before, he was supposedly put to death the 11th of July. But more and more evidence is surfacing that Lennox might actually have died in a kennel 2 months ago already, after having been treated horribly.
