A Rottweiler-cross dog which bit four people during an incident at a seaside holiday park bar must be destroyed, a judge ruled today. Trouble had erupted after Thomas Skillen, 29, of Pensarn, Abergele, and his stepdad Ian Loftus, 58, of Kinmel Bay, were asked to stop Kilo the dog jumping on tables at the Magpie and Stump public house, Kinmel Bay, on September 15.

Skillen, who Mold Crown Court heard also bit a man’s arm causing “excruciating” pain, was previously jailed for two-and-a-half years. He admitted being in charge of a dangerously out of control dog causing injury, affray and assault causing actual bodily harm. You can read the full story here.

Loftus received a 14 months jail term, suspended for 18 months, after admitting the dog offence. Judge Niclas Parry had adjourned a decision on Kilo’s destruction at the request of the defence.

The dog was in kennels. Judge Parry had remarked: ”This is as dangerous a dog as you could get and some of the injuries are just dreadful.

"Clearly, he won’t go back to these defendants again.” Today Kilo paid the ultimate price when the destruction order was made at Mold Crown Court.
