Fury as death dogs owner goes free

The family of a 14-year-old girl savaged to death by four dogs said they were "disgusted" after the owner was handed a suspended sentence for the dogs' mistreatment.

Beverley Concannon kept one of her dogs, a big American bull mastiff, in a tiny cage where it went "stir crazy" along with two other pit bulls and and another bull mastiff which were all kept cooped up in her home.

The court heard the conditions led to the dogs becoming stressed and "hyper aggressive," leading them to turn on and savage to death Jade Lomas-Anderson at the house in Atherton, Greater Manchester on March 26.
