Determination of Objection against Disqualification of Dog Owner Jarrod Sykes

 

Mayor W Brown left the meeting at 11.55pm.

 

The hearing commenced at 11.26am in relation to the objection to a Disqualification of Dog Owner.

 

Jarod Sykes addressed the committee and outlined their objection to being issued with a Disqualification of Dog Owner classification.

Council staff addressed the committee and outlined the Disqualification of Dog Owner classification and responded to questions.

The objector was given the opportunity to reply to the matters raised by the council staff and provide the committee with final comments.

 

The hearing concluded at 11.58am.

Determination of Objection against Disqualification of Dog Owner Jarrod Sykes

 

Resolution number RSCCC/2023/72

MOVED by Chairperson J Bartley, seconded by IMSB Member N Blair:   

That the Regulatory and Community Safety Committee:

a)      whakaae / agree to hear and determine the objection, and

b)      whakaae / agree to uphold the disqualification of Mr Jarrod Sykes for the period of 5 years from 3 February 2020 to 3 February 2025.

Restatement

c)      whakaae / agree that the matter remain confidential until the conclusion of the hearing and then be restated in the open minutes.

CARRIED

 

Reason for decision:

The circumstances of the offending that resulted in a disqualification notice are serious as the dog was not registered, had shown anxiety towards a child playing nearby but was not removed and later bit the 2 year old victim on his face and rag-dolled him in an arch of about 2 metres.  The child sustained serious injuries to his face requiring multiple surgeries.

Mr Sykes opposed disqualification because the notice was issued 3 years after the incident, he was convicted and sentenced by the Court and would not be able to live in same house as his partner who was transferred ownership of the objectors current dog.

The Committee considers that the seriousness of the attack warrants disqualification and general deterrence.  The delay in issuing a disqualification notice was because the objector’s address was unknown at the time.  The objector chose to transfer ownership of his current dog to his partner, rather than a third party.  If ownership is transferred to a 3rd party the objector is able to live at the same address as his partner.

 

 

 

12.22 pm                                            The chairperson thanked members for their attendance and attention to business and declared the meeting closed.
