December 10, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court, 33-year-old Gregory Veinotte, [22/7/82] plead guilty to keeping two unlicenced pitbulls, an adult and a puppy, at his Southampton residence between a date unknown and May 2015. Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo fined him $600 for the two offences.

The Crown Prosecutor told the Magistrate that the Dog Warden had executed a search warrant at Mr Veinotte’s residence and discovered the two pitbulls in the yard of Mr Veinotte’s residence. The Warden seized both dogs.

On checking, the adult pitbull had a micro-chip but the licence period had expired and the dog was now unlicenced.

Later Mr Veinotte appeared at the Paget pound and admitted ownership and keeping the two dogs.

Mr Veinotte told the Magistrate that he had taken the adult dog off someone else and had found the puppy on the Railway Trail and had taken it into his care.
