Owner of husky loses appeal over 'menacing' classification

From Checkpoint, 5:54 pm on 16 September 2020

The Nelson City Council has deemed a dog, which attacked and killed a sheep, must remain muzzled in public.

Banshee the Husky mauled a sheep in June and was classified as a menacing dog.

Its owner today unsuccessfully appealed in having that classification overturned.

A warning, some may find parts of Tracy Neal's report distressing.
