Notice at 21st Oct 2019: The article has been removed. I was contacted by the attorney of the person who is the subject matter of the article requesting that I remove or modify it because the allegation of animal cruelty against his client had not been proved in court. The case against his client has been expunged. I have seen the court document.
I won’t go into the details of how and why this happened. The request was made politely and it was well reasoned. Slightly reluctantly, I have to admit, I have complied with the request because I don’t want to risk harming the reputation of an individual unless and until there are excellent and sound reasons for so doing.
I would add that if information comes to light that this person – the subject matter of this article – has subsequently been charged with animal abuse of any kind and it comes to my notice, the removed text will be reinstated and updated. I have stored the article in a file just in case that event comes to pass.
I apologise to anyone who has visited this page looking for the article. If you are one of those people and would like to contact me for whatever reason please feel free to do so. My contact details are accessible from the menu bar at the top of the page.
