The police shot Charlie once, but the dog kept attacking, so they shot him again. Clarke was rushed to the hospital but never regained consciousness.
The day before his death, Clarke had celebrated his 79th birthday. In court, the details of the attack were revealed. The dog had essentially amputated Clarke’s left arm and his right arm was just hanging by a thread.
The judge, Mark Brown, said that Clarke’s death was preventable and believes that prosecutors should have tried to charge the women with manslaughter. Instead, the two were charged under the Dangerous Dogs Act.
There have been changes in the law since this attack and the maximum sentence future violators could face is 14 years in jail.
