Charlie's Angel Fights Dog Case
Former CHARLIE'S ANGEL and BOND girl TANYA ROBERTS is taking Los Angeles' dog patrol authorities to court after they nabbed her pooch SPANKY for attacking a neighbour.
The actress claims she's being victimised because she's a celebrity, after her pet attacked a jogger while he was out walking with his mistress.
The A VIEW TO A KILL star says, "It's ridiculous. I save dogs. I'm sort of a dog activist and Spanky is a little angel."
Roberts claims the attack was blown out of proportion by her neighbour, who called the authorities to complain.
She adds, "This was a dog nip. He didn't grab a child or rip off someone's arm. It was a scratch. There was no blood.
"It's just absurd. I'm a wonderful dog owner and I do lots of charity stuff. I'm looking for some justice as a citizen. They've crashed down on me with no sensitivity - like I'm some kind of monster. We want our little Spanky back."
Roberts is suing the Los Angeles Department of Animals over the ordeal and the stress from it.30/05/2003 19:05
