Another day in court for dog case

 

One more day is required to complete a court hearing for a Black Creek couple who are currently involved in a legal battle with the Comox Valley Regional District over an application to destroy their dogs.

Edith and Jacques Manseau's two Newfoundland dogs are currently being held at the Comox Valley SPCA following their seizure resulting from neighbourhood complaints earlier this year.

On Tuesday, a variety of witnesses were questioned by the CVRD's lawyer Troy DeSouza and the Manseau's lawyer Eric Chesterley.

Derald Lewis, bylaw compliance manager for the CVRD, told the Record the seizure was spurred following a complaint of a vicious dog attack by the Newfoundland dogs to a neighbouring Jack Russell terrier.

The case was sent to the judicial case manager to fix a date for closing statements.
