A dog owner Michelle Scott has blasted a local minicab firm from Hull for refusing to send a car to pick her and her beloved pit bull up.
On the first anniversary of her mother’s death, Michelle was hoping to take her eight-year-old Willow to the cemetery to visit the grave, but she says the firm refused to pick them up.
Michelle has now claimed an act of discrimination against the hull minicab firm, saying they refused the fare on the grounds of the breed of dog, even though she has a special certificate to prove Willow is not considered a threat or pose a risk.
Pitbulls are one of a few breeds of dog that are banned in the UK due to their aggressive and powerful nature, and however, in some cases, dog owners are allowed to have one if a special certificate is signed by the authorities to prove the dog is not a danger to anyone.
According to the reports, Ms Scott has had Willow since she was a newborn pup, and she has been left shocked and hurt by the way her dog has been treated by the minicab firm.
