Last week we posted about Hank. He’s a puppy in Belfast, Northern Ireland who has been taken from his family & is to be euthanized because he looks like a pit bull. This is appalling. He’s just a puppy.
Hank has a petition going with over 250,000 signatures & growing. He has some celebrities in the United Kingdom championing his cause as well. But it seems the Belfast Town council remains indifferent & wants him killed.
Hank is due to be assessed this week ( How & by who? The authorities won’t say). His family is not being told where Hanks is being held nor are they allowed to visit him.
The Belfast city council have informed the family that they will not discuss anything relating to Hank with them. All communication must go through their solicitor. This seems like bullying to me. The backwards thinking & ignorance of this city’s council members is disgraceful.
Please take a moment to visit Hank’s page on Facebook. Sign the petition to help this innocent puppy & his family. Please also take a moment to find how you can do something to end BSL (breed specific legislation) where you live. There is a viable, proven alternative, called the “Canine Threat Assessment Guide”, or C-TAG. Australia has already adopted it, but it should be applied everywhere. Dogs should not be at risk simply because of their appearance. A dog is a dog.
