Clapton, London E5: Onur Kalan

#TheList convicted drug dealer and addict Onur Kalan, born c. 1988, of 18C Southwold Road, Clapton, London E5 9PT – left his elderly dog to become blind, crippled and floundering in his own excrement

An Iman told a drug-addicted dog owner he could kill his pet after neglect left the animal blind and crippled, a court heard. Bull mastiff ‘Tiger’ was found floundering in his own excrement by RSPCA inspectors, suffering from heart disease and hardly able to eat. He was only discovered when his owner, Onur Kalan was arrested for drug offences.

The dog was so ill there was no alternative but to put him down, Willesden Magistrates’ Court was told. The Iman had previously told Kalan he could kill the dog – but he did not have the courage to do it.

Defending Kalan, Georgia Lascombe, said: ‘He sought advice from his Imam because he was worried about taking the life of an animal.

‘He was told it was fine. He had a long-term attachment to the dog and asked his brother to do it.

‘At the time he was significantly suffering from drug and alcohol addiction.’

Sarah Gabay, prosecuting, said: ‘Police attended the defendant’s address. They went out the back door of the house. There was a courtyard divided into three areas. In one there was a kennel.

‘There was dirty green foam and it was covered in moss. The area was covered in faeces and there was a bright yellow liquid, either sick or excrement.

‘There were two dirty bowls. The area did not look like it had been cleaned for a long time.

‘Tiger was extremely nervous and shaking, and his tail was down. His eyes had cataracts.

‘However, he responded well to human contact, but he struggled getting up and down the stairs.

‘He was taken to the van and then to the kennels at Islington Police Station. He was sick on the way.

‘Treatment was started for heart disease and pain relief was given for arthritis. The dog was only eating small amounts and the breathing became more laboured.

‘There was no improvement in Tiger’s health and the decision was made that he should be put down.’

Sentencing: Kalan, who was already serving a 43-month prison sentence for dealing drugs, was jailed for another 12 weeks. He was banned from owning animals for life and told he could not appeal for 10 years.

Dylan Uttley had asked a Peterhead woman if he could use her home to sell drugs – a practice known as “cuckooing.”

Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard that she refused – but left the property to go and stay with a friend.

When she returned the next day, she discovered her home had been broken into – and spotted her beloved Lhasa Apso hanging from a door.

She smashed a window to get in and desperately tried to resuscitate the dog before realising he was dead.

The court heard neighbours heard her screams, and called the police.

Police searched a property on Seaton Drive in Aberdeen the following month, and came across Uttley.

Fiscal depute Eilidh Wright said: “Photographs of the accused and of the dead dog were recovered.

“An examination established these photographs had been taken at the locus, the first image was a selfie of the accused taken before hanging the dog.”

Uttley, whose address was given in court papers as Polmont YOI, admitted killing the dog.

He also confessed to supplying cocaine and diamorphine in August and September 2017.

Sheriff Jack Brown locked Uttley up for three years, and told him: “It is evident that you are not at the lowest end of the chain as far as this supply is concerned and you openly accept you employed others to sell drugs.”

He described the killing of the dog as a “singularly evil, callous and barbaric act” which Uttley “compounded by taking photographs of it.”

Sentencing: three years in jail.

In July 2018 Uttley was locked up for a further three years after being caught dealing crack cocaine in North Wales.

All five dogs had to be destroyed because they were too aggressive to be rehomed.

She also admitted causing unnecessary suffering to an animal by failing to arrange veterinary care for Yao.
