A DOG trainer who once had her own show on Channel 4 has again called on her 292,000 online followers to continue fighting to save a Jersey dog after an Island court deemed it was a pitbull – leaving its life in the balance.
Victoria Stilwell, who has previously voiced her concerns on social media about the case of Mr Bronx, wrote on Facebook this week: ‘We must make it known to the Jersey authorities that we will not stop fighting for his freedom.’
Last month the Petty Debts Court deemed Mr Bronx to be a pitbull terrier type – which it is illegal to import into the Island.
Customs officers and Home Affairs Minister Kristina Moore will now decide the dog’s future and could ultimately grant the family a licence or order the pet to be destroyed.
Following the court’s decision, an online petition calling on Deputy Moore to save Mr Bronx was set up. It has now received more than 4,800 signatures.
