Video: animal Shelter get to the Council of State because they pitbull Paco't want to euthanize after two biting incidents
Tens The animal Shelter Tienen throws himself in the battle for the one-year pitbull Paco to rescue the death. White mayor Jean-Pierre Taverniers (CD&V) decided after all to the dog for euthanasia after two biting incidents in Hoegaarden, a in sheep and other dogs. “We're now working already a while with Paco and our opinion is that this dog is not a danger for people,” says Sébastien Tonneus of the animal Shelter.

Sébastien went to Paco in the middle of February together with another pittbull ‘Billy’ pick up in the Hoegaarden. It went to an administrative seizure by the police of the zone Getevallei on the orders of the mayor of Hoegaarden, in the framework of the public safety. “The dogs had escaped from their owner. That was already the second time in a few weeks time and each time the error last. The first time there were a number of sheep slaughtered, the second time they were about a fence jumped and could as a Stafford and a Yorkshire attack. The Yorkshire died later of his injuries.”

In the Shelter, they already had experience with such administrative seizures. “We therefore knew what we had to do, namely, to the animals, they care for, to administer and especially to evaluate,” says Sébastien. “This evaluation is of great importance given, in the past we always by the relevant authorities or a mayor have been able to advise on the final destination of animals. We have the knowledge in-house.”

With other animals, they had the enormously difficult. But to other people, there was never the slightest problem. These dogs have a wrong start in life and have a lot to learn. But learn they can absolutely. With the right guidance and surrounded by the right people they have a future

Decision already taken

In the opinion was also taken into account the report of the veterinarian and input from the animal Welfare department. “We saw Paco and Billy dogs that are in their young life, yet not many had seen. Of socialization was not the case. With other animals, they had the enormously difficult. But to other people, there was never the slightest problem. These dogs have a wrong start in life and have a lot to learn. But learn they can absolutely. With the right guidance and surrounded by the right people they have a future. That was also the opinion that we went to submit it to the mayor. But the decision was apparently already taken: Billy would go back to the owner, and for Paco was waiting for euthanasia.”

Dog with a lot of potential

For Billy, however, was a positive turn. The owner had to the police, let them know that he was right after the facts away wanted to do both animals. “The police confirmed that as a result, if asylum is the owner were of Billy and Paco and that we could work on the future of Billy. Unfortunately, that changed nothing to the judgment for Paco. That also continued with this twist unchanged”, says Sébastien. “It speaks for itself that we with man and power to oppose the euthanasia of Paco. Just like Billy, we speak here about a young dog with a lot of potential. They have serious faults? Absolutely. Are they a danger for the society? No, and especially not under the supervision of someone who has this breed and knows how they should educate. Let that which is what we always seek: the right dog with the right people. We euthanize is not physically and mentally healthy animals. There have already been enough casualties.” The shelter now has a procedure at the Council of State started. “We ask an objective examination before there is just of euthanasia is chosen,” says Sébastien. “So, mayor, please, give us and the judiciary the chance to rethink it.”

No one can guarantee me that this dog such a thing will not do. What if the victim next time a child is?

Jean-Pierre Taverniets
to take Responsibility as mayor

Mayor Taverniers wants the court now work. “I shall continue with my decision. That is taken in consultation with several veterinarians, that me knew to tell that a dog that is two times an attack does, this will continue to do so. It was, in fact, according to witnesses, every time Paco that the facts committed. No one can guarantee me that this dog is no such thing more will do so in the future, and then I take my responsibility as mayor. What if the victim next time a man, let alone a child? If the asylum risk it wants to take as the owner, they can do that but. But then, the court must also but all of a sudden capture the asylum, and not the mayor, finally must decide the fate of the animal in such situations. Then, we need our time there no longer in stitches.”
