The defendants appealed by way of case stated against their convictions for noise nuisance for their husky kennels – ‘Howling Dog Kennels’. They said that it was impractical, both for animal welfare and cost reasons further to limit the noise.
Held: It was for the defendants to have shown that the best practicable means were in force at the time of the issue of the notice. The appeal was on the facts alone and failed.
