Age of Jack Lis
Jack Lis died at the age of 10 years old.
Cause of Death
Two friends responsible for an aggressive dog that battered a child to death were jailed for failing to prevent the tragedy.
Ten-year-old Jack Lis was attacked by an XL Bully dog named Beast while playing with a friend after school.
He owned the dog but asked his friend Salter if he could keep the dog at home for a while due to lack of space.
Prosecutor Gareth James said: “Mrs. Salter helped feed and water the Beast, but Mr. Hayden provided food and was the only person to walk him.”
In the four days, they owned the dog before the attack on Jack Lis, there was a series of incidents where the dog attempted to attack people and other dogs.
Beast, who weighs 44 kilograms (6.9 stones) of ‘muscle’, was seen in the video thrown at shoppers and children in the days before the deadly attack.
Security camera footage shown in court showed the animal jumping and biting a passerby, and when Hayden failed to pull it back, it rushed towards the frightened children.
The monster also ripped off shopper Sian Sullivan’s hoodie and attacked him, leaving wounds on his chest.
Hayden was also seen in “kicking and slapping” footage after jumping over a fence to shred a Jack Russell.
Mr. James said: “Hayden could see that such events were likely within 24 hours of owning the Beast.
‘Despite seeing things happen, Ms. Salter agreed to have Beast stay at the address and provided Beast with shelter, food, and watering.’
He said there was nothing like a cage to keep the Beast at home and he could move around as he pleased.
When the attack took place, the court heard how the Beast pushed Jack to the ground with ‘claws on his shoulders.
Neighbor Kirk Wiegold was warned of the attack, but when he tried to help he was only able to open the door ‘a bit’.
Emergency services rushed to the address in Caerphilly, South Wales, but Jack was pronounced dead.
Cardiff Crown Court heard that the Beast was shot at the scene by firearms officers as frightened neighbors gathered outside.
His mother, Emma Whitfield, was also in front of the house with them on November 8 last year, holding a toy in court.
She later received devastating news from the police after she made a statement about her son.
In a sacrifice statement, he said: ‘I close my eyes and see the animal and its teeth. I hear barking.
‘I used to be happy, cheerful, fun, but now I’m a nervous wreck. I’m angry that my child didn’t go out and come home.
I’m trapped in what used to be our family home. Now it is broken and it will never be the same again.’
She added: ‘Sorry. More than sad, I’m miserable.’
His father, John Lis, added: “Jack was a ten-year-old boy and had his whole life ahead of him, but it was taken from him in a very unnecessary and tragic way.”
Hayden made a prepared statement in the interview to claim that the dog ‘according to him’ belonged to Salter.
The court heard he arrived at the scene after the attack and looked ‘crazy’ before leaving when police arrived.
“He said he would never forget the images he saw and could never get them out of his mind,” said Mr. James.
Salter and Hayden admitted they were responsible for a dog that got dangerously out of control, causing fatal injury.
Hayden also admitted twice more to being responsible for a dog that was dangerously out of control and to being the owner of a dog that caused an injury while it was dangerously out of control in a public place.
Judge Michael Fitton QC said: ‘Jack’s death was a completely tragic, unnecessary event. It shouldn’t have. It doesn’t have to be.’
Hayden was sentenced to four years and six months in prison. Salter was sentenced to three years in prison, including seven years in between.
The couple was also given an indefinite order to keep the dogs.
