Owner wants answers over dead dogs Al-Qaeda and Meow

CHERI Gaut loved her dogs Al-Qaeda and Meow.

Now Cheri wants answers as to why they were destroyed.

She said the dogs were put down in December last year.

Cheri said her ordeal started when she moved into a house on Normandy St in Yeppoon.

"As soon as we moved in, there was a neighbour complaining that the dogs were barking and getting out," Cheri said. "I got numerous infringements."

Cheri claims there was a mix up with her dogs, when someone on the street was attacked.

"Apparently they had bitten someone, but what we can see from the paperwork is that it wasn't my dogs," she said.

The pure bred bull arab and bull arab cross were declared dangerous.

But Cheri said she was at a loss as to how her dogs would've wandered out of her premises, when she said she had them locked underneath her Queenslander house when she wasn't home.

It was on December 14, 2012, when Cheri said she came home and couldn't find her dogs.

"I saw a couple of palings from the house had been jemmied off; then we got a letter from council saying someone had surrendered the dogs," Cheri explained.

Her dogs were then destroyed.

She is now taking her questions to Rockhampton Regional Council after she claimed her paperwork showed council found her dogs wandering the streets that day, not surrendered.

Cheri wants answers as to what exactly happened.

Cheri and her family have since moved to Brisbane after the dogs were put down.

"I mainly moved because of all of this; it's put a bee in my bonnet with council here," Cheri said.
