Lilydale, East Melbourne, Austrailia – Margaret Jensz’s golden retriever was impounded for four months when on January 11, 2013, two two Yarra Ranges council officers showed up at her door and claimed her five-year-old female golden retriever Teesha of killing a nearby cat.
Teesha was impounded for four months at the Coldstream Animal Aid while the case was being investigated. I try not to comment with my own opinion on articles like this but I can boldly say that 4 months sounds insanely extreme to me.
The Herald Sun reports that on April 18, 2013, the case was dismissed as “there was no condemning evidence Teesha was responsible for killing the cat.”
“A golden retriever is not a dangerous dog,” Mrs Jensz said in the article.
