Legal dogfight involving Black Creek couple needs extra day

Another day is required to complete a court hearing for a Black Creek couple who are involved in a legal battle with the Comox Valley Regional District over and application to destroy their dogs.
Edith and Jacques Manseau's two Newfoundland dogs are being held at the Comox Valley SPCA following seizure spurred from neighbourhood complaints earlier this year.
Tuesday, both Edith and Jacques took the stand and were questioned by the CVRD's lawyer Troy DeSouza and the Manseau's lawyer Eric Chesterley.
The couple both stated separately they have never observed aggressive behaviour by either of their dogs, Champ and Chum.
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 to hear testimony and closing statements.
