Informant: Lennox Died Months Ago At Hands Of BCC

BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND—The host of an internet radio show says she has been given information by an unidentified informant that Lennox, a dog which became the center of an international effort to save his life, died months ago while in captivity in the hands of the Belfast City Council.

Dr. Leigh Foster, creator and host of The Pawz Cauze Show, says that the informant has told her that Lennox was found dead in his kennel months ago.

This information is only a rumor and has not been substantiated nor can it be determined if it is credible.

Canine Aggression Issues with Jim Crosby: Lennox: The gloves come off. | I am Lennox | Scoop.it

From the beginning of my involvement with the Lennox case (which dates back almost a year to when Victoria Stilwell brought me in) I have stayed as neutral and professional as possible.  I have resisted criticising the BCC and their evaluator, as we were trying to get me to Northern Ireland and get access to Lennox to give a fair, objective, and behaviorally sound evaluation.  Sarah Fisher had done a great job, but I brought extensive "Pit Bull" experience coupled with unparalleled experience with "killer dogs" (dogs that have taken human lives).  So I kept my opinion considered and low key, hoping that I could have come in as an "outside" expert, supplemented Victoria and Sarah's efforts, and gotten the BCC to listen.  Now that Lennox is dead and the case is over, I no longer have to hold my tongue.

Belfast Still Dodging Lennox Questions

BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND—As more and more information begins to leak out from sources within Belfast, the Belfast City Council boat is beginning to rock.

It’s likely the BCC vessel will soon be listing and finally sink with all the debris floating to the surface, including the truth in the case involving Lennox, the family pet who was killed by the BCC because they didn’t like they way he looked.

On July 11, the day the BCC confirmed Lennox’s death, the host of an internet radio show says that she received information by an unidentified informant that Lennox, who which became the center of an international effort to save his life, died months ago while in captivity in the hands of the Belfast City Council.

After The North Country Gazette published an article concerning that allegation, another informant surfaced with information speculating about where Lennox was held during his captivity and questioning if a worker from that kennel is the source of the Lennox leak to the radio show host.

Now, The North Country Gazette has obtained new information about the kennel situation and is preparing a new exclusive article to be soon published for subscribers only.

In the meantime, well-known dog trainer Victoria Stilwell who had tried to save Lennox by offering to pay all expenses to relocate the dog to a sanctuary in the U.S., says the owners of the dog, the Barnes Family, have told her that the Belfast City Council will still not answer the family’s calls and have consistently ignored their request to have Lennox’s collar returned to them, nor have they returned ‘Lennox’s ashes.’

“There are many rumors circulating that Lennox died in a certain kennel location months before the BCC announced that he was euthanized and that the kennel panicked and were told by the BCC to get rid of everythingLennoxrelated”, Stilwell said in a posting on the internet.

“These are still just rumors and should not be taken for hard fact until the truth is revealed. The family are ‘heartbroken’. The media hype around this case might have died down but I can assure you everything will be done to ensure that one day the truth is known. Please share this with everyone you know to keep Lennox’s name alive and to ensure that future dogs and their people do not have to suffer because of ignorance”.
