This emerged from a judge- ment handed down this morn- ing by Magistrate Gabriella Vel- la against Eric Attard, who had been charged with keeping an unregistered dangerous animal, failing to house it in a zoologi- cal establishment and that the animal's enclosure had not been inspected or approved by the au- thorities. Attard had also been charged with recidivism, having been convicted of raising unregis- tered cougar cubs in 2019, for which he had been conditionally discharged. Attard had pleaded guilty to the charges, bar that of recid- ivism, of which he was acquit- ted due to lack of evidence. The prosecution and the Director of Veterinary Services had with- drawn their request for the seizure of the leopard, after in- forming the court that the man had registered it with the au- thorities during the course of the proceedings against him. Finding the man guilty upon his own admission and in view of the early guilty plea, the court imposed a fine of €2,000, to be paid in monthly instalments within 10 months. Lawyer Veronique Dalli ap- peared for Attard. Four men grievously injured after altercation in St Julian's FOUR men are in hospital with grievous injuries following an altercation in St Julian's early on Tuesday. Police said that at around 4:15am, an argument between a group of men erupted at Triq San Ġorġ, where allegedly, a sword and glass objects were used. A medical team and a num- ber of ambulances were called for assistance. Four men, a 36-year-old Libyan, a 24-year- old Iranian, a 28-year-old from England and another whose identity is still unknown, were taken to Mater Dei hospital for treatment. They were all certified as suf- fering from grievous injuries. Another five people are be- ing question by the police and Magistrate Elaine Mercieca launched an inquiry into the case.
