A dog which has been reprieved - contingently ....

The case of R v Davies [2010] EWCA Crim 1923 may be of interest to dog owners.  A destruction order for an alsatian was made but the Court of Appeal has quashed that order and put in its place a "Contingent Destruction Order" requiring the owner to keep the dog under control or else ....!  Such orders can be made under s.4A of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991.  That section was inserted into the 1991 Act by an amending Act in 1997.  See here for further information on the law.
