A young black and white dog with the betting name of New Phase is destroyed during Sky’s live coverage of the All England Cup at Newcastle dog track.

Not an unusual event by any means – but the poster barely draws breath before he announces how well another dog ‘in his care’ – Ayamzagirl – competes in a later race.

Evidence if ever there was – that the owner shows no Duty of Care – an offence under the Animal Welfare Act – towards Ayamzagirl and knowingly puts her life at risk where less than an hour before New Phase sustains a treatable injury but yet the decision is taken to destroy him.

New Phase was less than two years old and had only been raced five times for his ‘owner’
