Council seizes 29 ‘campaign’ dogs TWENTY nine dogs have been seized from a property owner at Blind Bight for contravening a local law that limits the number of animals allowed to be kept without a permit. Troy Scoble was found guilty at the Dandenong Magistrates Court in late June 2016, of keeping too many animals on his property and failing to meet basic registration requirements. “Council is in regular contact with the owner of the dogs, who are being vet-checked and will be cared for until a decision on their future is made,� Casey mayor Cr Sam Aziz said. “Council acted as swiftly as it could within the bounds of the law and in the best interests of the dogs. Dogs being kept at the property featured as part of the 2 July federal election campaign of Animal Justice Party candidate for Flinders, Ben Wild, who attracted 4.2 per cent of votes. The seat was retained by Liberal Greg Hunt (51.6 per cent of votes). Mr Wild distributed images of dogs chained to kennels to illustrate the need for a federal office of animal welfare. He said the department should stand apart from the agriculture department and be in a position to strengthen the powers of animal welfare organisations, including the RSPCA. �This case began in February this year when Oscar’s Law broke the news of up to 40 dogs being held on small chains, in muddy bushland out the back of Mr Scoble’s property in Blind Bight,� Mr Wild said last week. “Since this time there have been a number of campaigns to save the dogs,

Dog killed, two injured in crash A DOG was killed and two other dogs injured, one seriously, when a car they were riding in crashed into a pole at Rosebud, Thursday night. The driver of the car, a 55-year-old Safety Beach man, was airlifted to Royal Melbourne Hospital with nonlife threatening injuries. The accident occurred at 6.40pm at the intersection of Point Nepean Rd and First Av. Sergeant David Collins, of Mornington Peninsula Highway Patrol, said the dead dog was on the front seat and hit the windscreen and the others were in the rear. He said marks on the rear of the front seat indicated the force of the impact. There is no suggestion of speeding or alcohol. Rosebud CFA crews helped free the two surviving dogs which were taken by the Rosebud police van to an afterhours vet.

with police, the RSPCA and the council visiting the property on numerous occasions. “In the end it was a council by-law that eventually got these dogs out of there.â€? Mr Wild said that the seizure of the dogs was “truly a tremendous outcome ‌ we are only part way thereâ€?. During the election campaign Mr Wild had nearly 16,000 signatures on a petition asking for any level of govern-

ment to come to the aid of the dogs. “After all the community outrage and concern, it was a simple council by-law regarding registration that saved these dogs. Once again this highlights the absolute gulf developing between community expectations regarding animal welfare and the actual laws that govern them,� he said. “But it’s not over yet for these poor animals – with months of rehabilitation expected ahead.

“These dogs have endured both physical and psychological trauma over this last year and will take some serious rehabilitation before they can be re-homed. “But in the end this is exactly what we have hooped for since the plight was brought to our attention.� Mr Wild said he was grateful that the City of Casey had had “the foresight to develop stronger by-laws on animal�.

FORMER Tyabb resident Roy Flood died on 31 July aged 87. Residents may remember him as proprietor of the garage on the Frankston-Flinders Rd he and his brother Alan ran for 25 years, and for the swag of organisations with which he was associated. Perhaps the most significant of these was the scouting movement, of which he was district commissioner for 12 years. He was also a JP for 27 years. Mr Flood, whose wife Jean died in 2011, is survived by their children Gary, Robert, Jamie, and Cathie. The funeral will be at 10am, Wednesday 10 August, at Tobin Brothers Chapel, Mt Martha.
