"I concluded that the defendant’s dog “Ginger’ had in fact been responsible for initiating the attack on “Buddy” and for repeatedly biting Jody MacDonald and her dog. The repeated biting of “Buddy was sufficient to inflict serious wounds which were described by Jody MacDonald in her testimony. Further, this attack was made possible by the failure of Bernadette Razac to keep Ginger leashed and muzzled on the date in question."
"I hereby confirm and incorporate my findings of credibility and fact which appear elsewhere in this judgment. In particular, I have found that Ginger attacked and repeatedly bit both Buddy and his owner, Jody MacDonald."
"My finding was that Ginger was not leashed and not muzzled on November 29, 2005. Further, I found that Ms. Razac’s failure to follow her son’s instructions had facilitated this attack on Buddy. Had Ginger been properly muzzled on the date in question, Ginger may still have been able to start the dog-fight. However, the muzzle would have prevented her from repeatedly biting and seriously injuring Buddy."
