Princess Anne expresses her sadness after her dog trainer is killed


Princess Anne expresses grief over the death of her dog trainer, Debbie Zurick, 56 who died from injuries sustained from gunshots over the weekend and her husband John is believed to be in the hospital with serious injuries.

The incident took place near the hamlet of Winsford, close to Stanley Johnson’s estate. 

“Princess Royal is saddened to hear of the death of Mrs Debbie Zurick. She will be sorely missed as secretary of the Working Clumber Spaniel Society, of which Her Royal Highness is Patron.”- a spokesperson for Princess Anne said.

 Police confirmed that they were called to Winsford by a member of the public at 2.30pm on Saturday. Firearms officers attended and CPR was performed on Debbie, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Also speaking the Prime Minister’s father expressed his sadness following the news.

“Both I and my whole family are shocked, stunned and saddened by this tragic incident,” he told the Guardian. “We very much regret the passing of Mrs Zurick. She was a neighbour and she was much loved. She was honorary secretary of the Working Clumber Spaniel Society and was much loved for the work she did, in the society and in Exmoor and beyond.”

Princess Anne was the first royal to be convicted of a criminal offence and charged to court after one of her bulldogs attacked two children in 2002. She ended up paying the fine of £500 under the Dangerous Dog Acts, £500 compensation to the two victims and £148 in court costs. The court also ordered Anne to keep her English bull terrier, named Dotty, on a lead in public, plus to organise training for the animal.
