Post your comments on this.

A courtroom observing a French murder trial could be excused for thinking the presiding judge has gone barking mad.

Scooby the dog makes legal history after appearing in court as a witness in a murder case

A dog named Scooby has created legal history by appearing as a witness in a murder case.

The animal's 59-year-old owner had been found hanging from the ceiling of her Paris flat. Police believe it was suicide but her family say that it was murder.

The dog was in the flat at the time of the death.

During a preliminary hearing in the city, the pet was led into the witness box by a vet.

A suspect in the case was presented to the dog, to see how it reacted.

It is said to have 'barked furiously'.

The aim was to decide if there was sufficient evidence to launch a full murder inquiry.

A decision on the case is pending.

The legal first took place in the Paris suburb of Nanterre, with controversial French judge Thomas Cassuto praising the animal for his ‘exemplary behaviour and invaluable assistance.’

The dog, who shares his name with timid cartoon crime-buster Scooby Doo, was believed to have been with his owner during her last hours two-and-a-half years ago.

During the hearing a court clerk was asked to ‘record all of the dog’s barks’ and to note ‘its general behaviour throughout the cross examination’.

Well. I for one would have checked the dogs sanity. Took it to a psychic and have a nice good evaluation of his psyche and then determined his testimony to be true.

Hmm, the point is that animals don't have the same rights as humans, as in most countries law system, animals are looked at as things. Can things think? No.
