A new article:
Tweet The mother of a four-year-old girl who was severely attacked by a Pit Bull Terrier in France has hit out at the actress Brigitte Bardot, who has called for the dogs life to be saved. The dog known as Prince, which was handed over to the local council in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France by its owners, is due to be put down after the attack last month that left the child, Carmen, with injuries to her forehead, eyes and ears. Her nose was also badly damaged. Despite the attack, Ms Brigitte Bardot, who runs an animal rights foundation, has said the dog should not be killed, and has written to the towns mayor to criticize its now solitary living conditionsWe need to release this dog from hellMs Bardot told the French newspaper La Voix du Nord.Hes in total isolation; he sees no one.
But Brigitte Bardots concerns for the dog have not gone down well with Carmens parents.Its unacceptableher mother told French media.[Ms Bardot’s just there to defend the dog and she does not have the right to play down my daughters injuries. My daughter tells me every day that she looks like a monster. TheAnd God Created Woman star argues that, having ended the death penalty for humans, France should not put animals to death, adding in an appeal to the towns mayor that solitary confinement could well send the dog mad or make it simply give up and die. The mayor has responded to Ms Bardots letter by inviting her to visit Boulogne-sur-Mer to see for herself the quality of the dog-house.
The dogs owner identified only as Johnny and the parents of its victim, meanwhile, have started legal proceedings against the Society for the Protection of Animals (SPA). They say they were not told that Prince, who under his previous name Ulk, partially devoured the corpse of his previous owner who had died of natural causes last September. The dogs defenders have said that this was a survival instinct, and at the time, police classed him asnecrophagous by necessity. On the SPA website, Prince was described asa good sort, easy to get on with, although it was not advised for people with families. The SPA says it told the new owner about the previous incident, but the owner denies this.
