Wednesday, 21 September 2022
A Derbyshire man has been ordered by a court to destroy his dog after an incident that led to the death of livestock on a Derbyshire farm. Christian Kent, of Dronfield, has been convicted on two counts of being the owner or person in charge of a dog dangerously out of control.
Convicted at Chesterfield Magistrates Court, Kent was also found guilty of being the person in charge of a dog worrying livestock on two counts. He received a dog destruction order, disqualification from owning dogs plus £1,500 compensated and £85 costs. It means the dog will be put down and Kent will no longer be allowed to own a dog.
