Heseltine: I did not kill mum’s dog
BREAST WORLD: Viewers get four minutes of orgy action FORMER deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine has denied killing his mother’s dog.
The Tory faced a backlash after telling a society magazine he had pulled the Alsatian’s collar tight and it had gone limp.
But yesterday the peer insisted Kim the pet dog was still alive after the incident and was put down the following day by a vet because of its violent outburst.
He said: “I didn’t strangle the dog. They have misunderstood.”
In an interview with Tatler, Lord Heseltine said the pet “had some sort of mental breakdown”.
“I went to stroke him and he started biting me. If you have a dog that turns, you just cannot risk it.
“So I took Kim’s collar – a short of choker chain – and pulled it tight.
“Suddenly he went limp.
“I was devoted to Kim, but he’d obviously had some sort of mental breakdown.”
The former Cabinet minister said the story had been misinterpreted.
He said: “The dog was perfectly all right after this incident.”
The next day the peer, whose wife was pregnant at the time, took the dog to the vet, who told him he “had no choice but to have the dog put down” because it was dangerous.
It comes after Lord Heseltine – nicknamed Tarzan – claimed to have shot dead 350 grey squirrels in six months.
