london guide dog attacker caught and punished


JOHN JO MADDEN

the teenage punk whose pitbull-type dog savaged a blind woman's guide dog has been banned from keeping dogs for ten years and ordered to pay £2,000 in compensation. madden also received a 3 month suspended jail sentence and was ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work. the frankenmauler has been ordered destroyed but its whereabouts are unknown. this punk should have to sit in jail until he coughs it up.


neela required emergency vet care. i am sure seattle dog trainer STORMI KING would like to refute the actual physical damages.

Can't believe this wasn't worthy of jail time...especially since he left that blind woman with a torn up guide dog.

I get the impression that the press has been receiving threats from the PB criminal circuit. The first link here clearly says this yob's dog is a pit bull. The second link calls it 'a terrier type', while the third link only calls it the punk's 'pet' and 'the animal'. Without the visual images, you might think the shite was walking his cat.

I'm recently also noticing the use of this 'terrier type' euphemism in dog trainer circles. Newspeak (Orwell's word) -- anything, oh anything, to avoid calling a spade a spade.

Maybe they haven't found this PB because the general public is now keeping an eyes out for a killer Yorkshire terrier?

Jail the punk not only til he coughs up the pit bull, but also until he's paid all the fines and damages he's been ordered to pay. If he can't pay, let him rot there til he dies.

In my personal circle, small as it is, I have three blind friends whose guide dogs have been attacked by pit bull type dogs.

In every single case, the owner of the PB left the scene as quickly as possible, leaving these blind people behind with horribly injured guide dogs AND literally lost in the dark while dealing with such a traumatic calamity. One of these cases took place in a local woods, where my blind friend could never have found her way back to a road without sighted help.

The egoism is pathological, and the way politicians are failing us is appalling. I do hope people won't limit themselves to commenting here, but will also notify their local 'humane' societies and their politicians that they will withhold all contributions and votes until support for BSL is forthcoming.

I assume he is only sentenced for kicking the poor pit bull and not for the attack on Neela?

NOT FOR PUBLICATION unless you want to

I stumbled across this craven and thought it might interest you

Another non-pit bull breeder (he breeds Shepherds and Malinois. probably one of the breeders feeding off our tax money and selling these hugely overpriced and still genetically messed up dogs to police departments, etc. These breeders are always opposing bsl, even though pit bulls are killing Shepherds and Malinois too!)

He starts by sort of doing the usual and saying pit bulls are ok, but then most definitely something changes.

The UK press is always very, very reluctant to mention the name of the breed. Usually you have to check several articles and hope you find a picture in one of them.

Not calling a pit a pit by the media happens here in the USA too. I saw a newscast the other night and not once did they refer to the dog as a pit bull but the picture of the dog certainly told the tale. I did write the TV station and explain why they need to identify the breed. So it makes you think, are there more maulings and fatalities out there that are overlooked because of no identification by the media for the breed.

Human garbage. He should have to sit in jail until he tells the police where to find that dog.

Dog Nerd said...

The fact that you would take a jab at such a gifted and educated dog trainer as Stormi is pretty indicative of the level of intelligence going on here. Oh, and Leerburg is an idiot, also well known in educated dog circles.

i only know of leerburg's existence. i don't know enough to have an opinion about him but given the law of averages, he's probably an idiot.
i do know about the gifted and educated dog trainer though. so check back.

here we say white trash which is not really racially offensive merely decriptive.in britain i would say white shite because it seems they add an e to the word shit. that kid jo jo madden's got that shit bull stare. look away when see that in the four legged version.

maltese falcon said...

craven: talking of blind people, did you hear of the blind person who was attacked by a nanny dog for not looking away.if you are visually impaired dont look in one place for long. twice ive been charged by shitmixes for a friendly look. i love dogs but not quite so much lately.

hey craven : bet you loved my double dirt nap story..absolutely true. dog and owner.talk about win,win. dont blame you for not sharing it tho some things are just not for polite society.

cravendesires said...

i don't see a double dirt nap story. can you resubmit. blogger can be quirky around comments. even mine.

not so pc in bc said...

well ,twice i was charged at by pitshitmixes for just looking too long and i quess in a challenging way.(in their reptilian minds) on both these different occasions the owners berated me for looking or not minding my own business.(classic pigman blame shift) the worst of these two pit owners,a dirty low-down pro -scumbag charged me like his dog had done, stuck his fugly mug right in my face and offered to kill me or something like that. well that was the end of that part of the story.i saw this bum a couple more times around town, one time with a couple other bums. then he went missing for a few years and there was an investigation into the disappearance. anyone seen angel the dog? no sign of either. well i figured i knew what had happened to hippie and angel. one of his fellow scumbag drifters had killed him. dirt napped them both. and thats what was found out, they had been killed for some reason or none by some guy who is now in prison for three murders i think. ive always said god is a golden retriever. rip hippie and angel

i'm puzzled and frustrated by the Uk and canada stripping the right of their citizenry to arm themselves YET still allow weapon dogs.

what kind of weapons do you have legal access to up there?

notpcinbc said...

craven i grew up with guns for shooting and hunting ,not for protection but now it,s not worth the bother. you cant carry a gun for protection and the authorities dont want you to have one in the house either. they said get a baseball bat. that no good for a woman. you d probably go to jail for protecting yourself with a gun and yet the criminals have handguns. the government says this is the best place on earth. i say its gone to the dogs. especially this town- lets call it hogtown , lots of hogs ,hogdoggers and hogdogs

cravendesires said...

how strange. baseball bats are illegal where i live.

i am surprised to hear that you have hog doggers up there.

holdin my nose said...

craven: no i didn't exactly mean that. i should've said hawgs(bikes), hogdogs(pigdogs)and hogmen(pitlovers)not that id rule that other thing out completely.i will say theres been a lot of hogdogging hog politics hitting the fan here lately. its kind of stunk the place up.
