And all just because a cute puppy made “kis”
The four-month-old dog escaped from the owners living in Northamptonshire and was lost. He hid under the car and, according to police, interfered with traffic safety. When the puppy was tried to be taken out from under the car, he twice bit the law enforcement officer. The policeman did not like this attitude toward himself, and he sent a furry violator to the nursery. The policeman himself did not receive serious injuries, but was forced to go to the hospital. A few hours later, the puppy was arrested on the basis of the “Dangerous Animal Act” of 1991 for 9 months. According to this law, a dog can be considered dangerous if it injures a person or another animal, and also if by its actions it carries a threat to life and health. If animal owners are found guilty, they face a range of penalties: from a fine to 14 years in prison,
@northantspolice #freeBungle let this tiny puppy go home, your actions are cruel and uncalled for. He was scared of the big wide world and the big policeman. He did not know he was trying to help cause he’s only a baby.

Let this tiny puppy go home, your actions are cruel and inappropriate. He was afraid of the big world and the big cop. He did not know that they were trying to help him, because he was just a child.
Absolutely ridiculous!!! What a waste of time and tax payers money! Can’t the police use their time to catch real criminals? Knife crime is on the up, drug deals happening everywhere, but no.. your concern is a 4 month terrified puppy! Embarrassing! #freebungle

That’s just funny!!! A waste of time and taxpayer money! Can’t the police use their time to catch real criminals? Knife crimes are on the rise, drug business is everywhere, but no .. your concern is a 4-month-old scared puppy! Shame on you
The head of the local police, Chris Hillery, defended his employee. He stated that the decision to detain a dog was made in the context of some very real and serious cases involving dog bites, which resulted in serious injury and even death.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]To completely clarify the situation I will say that I fully support the actions of the officer in this case. The dog was unattended on a busy lot and was aggressive towards those present, as a result of which the policeman was bitten and injured, which required treatment in the hospital.[/perfectpullquote]
In social networks launched a campaign to support the family, which was upset because of this situation. The support group on Facebook gathered more than 5,000 people, and the Twitter hashtag #FreeBungle was distributed on Twitter .Many even signed a petition for the release of a puppy. The story even hit the front page of The Sun. The family hired lawyers to bring the puppy home and eventually the police gave up.
I’M A SILLY PUPPY – GET ME OUT OF HERE!

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]This morning we contacted the authorities. They said that they reviewed the case and decided to return it home. In the evening a policeman brought Bangla home. Bungle was very happy to see us.

It was awesome. We were surprised that we told about the situation in the national media. And especially upset because a policeman was injured during his capture. We want to thank him and say thanks for the work.[/perfectpullquote]
