Arrow A Lesson Learned From A Very Unfortunate Event


A dog so wanted by a bright and bubbly little girl.
Lexi Branson was a four year old bubbly little girl from Leicestershire, England who loves to cuddle her new pet white and brindle Aylestone bulldog Mulan. Ms Hudson described Mulan as very gentle and shows no aggression towards Lexi.
A dog not suited to a family with small children.
When Jodi Hudson sees the advertised dog on the Willow Tree Kennels, a dog rehoming kennels at Barrow-on-Soar, Leicestershire, all she ever wanted was to make Lexi enjoy and be happy about the pet. She then showed Lexi the dog on the kennels’ place. The staff of the kennel shop had noted that the dog might not be suited for a Family with small children. But the dog was placid and Lexi seem to like her a lot and keep on stroking her repeatedly. And although Ms Hudson took some time on thoughts. When she returned to the kennels’ she paid £50 to take her home.
The Unheard Warning.
The dog was advertised by Willow Tree Kennels, a dog rehoming Kennels at Barrow-on-Soar, Leicestershire and described it as a dog suited to a home without young children due to its size yet staff described the dog’s temperament as “very friendly. Mulan was brought by Lexi’s mother, Jodi Hudson for £50. But little did she doesn’t know that the dog’s last owner had complained, the dog had attached other dog in their garden and that this owner was also concerned for the safety of his children. So as to be removed from that owner immediately, this last owner tried lying and told the council warden that the dog was a stray. This event should have been properly noted, recorded and known about this animal which could serve as a warning and will aid in the proper information, training and caring for this dog.
The tragic sudden attack.
On September 5, Lexi was off from school because she was not feeling continue well and watching TV. The dog just went up over Lexi and attack her getting straight to her throat. And although Ms Hudson had tapped the dog’s bum and Sid, ‘No!’ she continued getting through Lexi’s throat and around her mouth. Ms Hudson, upon seeing her struggling daughter desperately tried to pull off the dog from her trying all means possible. Her screams alerted a neighbor who tried pulling off the dog with a rolled blanket but to no avail. Ms. Hudson then ran over to the kitchen and got hold of the largest knife she saw and went back to the dog repeatedly stabbing it to death with the kitchen knife. She managed to snatch Lexi off outside and began CPR when paramedics and rescuers came shortly. Lexi has been managed to be airlifted to the Queen’s Medical Centre but died later due to severe facial injuries and suffocation.
A lesson learned.
Adopting a pet, not only dogs have some pros and cons. But it is very vital and important that everything must be accounted for on the past and present situation of the pet for adoption. Every pet owner past and present must account for the animal’s behavior as an aid to properly address and train an animal who rely greatly on care, understanding and proper training on his masters. All of us, humans or not undergo a certain degree of mental and psychological history brought by several circumstances controllable and uncontrollable that information from the past serve as the crucial link for the cure and in seeking for the right treatment. Animal behavior varies not only by its species and breed but most significantly from a prior experience and abuse. We all react based on a given stimuli and the outcome, unfortunate it may seem can sometimes lead to a tragic end and lost lives – human or not.
