The dog was too “aggressive,” and so Judy Lloyd took it upon herself to kill the pooch by taking him the woods and running him over. She apologized at her sentencing, but said she was worried the dog would hurt a child. (She’s pictured here with her granddaughter).

‘I just want to tell the court I’m very very sorry. I couldn’t cope,’ she said, wiping tears from her eyes. ‘I just didn’t know what else to do.’

She said she knew her actions in killing the pet had caused pain to the members of her extended family.

Lloyd is the owner of several dogs including a black cocker spaniel, but that pet apparently did not show anywhere near the same level of aggression as her other white cross-bred dog.
