A SERIAL offender against the Domestic
Animals Act, Steven Kalos 32 of Dumbalk,
has had one of his dogs taken off him by
the courts with the intention that it will be
sold, or otherwise disposed of, by the South
Gippsland Shire Council.
The Korumburra Magistrates’ Court heard
on January 19 that Kalos had failed to the
keep his dogs restrained the day after ap-
pearing in the same court, on December 8
last year, where he copped a $2000 fine and
was ordered to take the necessary steps to
stop the dogs escaping.
But, as shire local laws coordinator, Bruce
Gardiner explained, his failure to keep the
dogs at home, the day after the court case,
was just the latest incident in a litany of of-
fending dating back to August 2014.
• August 2014 – two fines (failing to regis-
• February 2015 – one fine (dog at large)
• August 2015 – dogs at large and im-
pounded (one with a tag asking neighbours
to call a number before the ‘arseholes take
me to the pound)
• October 2015 – found guilty fined $1500
• May 2016 – Dogs impounded after mov-
ing from Leongatha to Dumbalk in April
• June 2016 – Neighbours’ rabbit allegedly
killed by Kalos’ dog
• September, October, November sum-
moned to court for allowing dogs to wander,
fined $2000, plus $389 costs.
• December 8 – convicted of same offences,
fined $2000, plus costs.
• January 19, 2017, fines and costs of
$689.90 and dog forfeited to the shire.
“ This is costing you a fortune,” Magistrate
“ It was an accident. I only went to the toilet.
I was gutted they got out... I’d love another
chance to prove it (keep them restrained), ”
said Mr Kalos.
“You’re not going to get it,” said Mr Alsop,
acceding to the shire’s request for one of the
dogs to be forfeit.
After being hit with another $2000 fine, costs
of $698.90 and forfeiture of the dog, it was an
upset Mr Kalos who left the court room.
The shire already has the dog in its pound
but it is not known if it has disposed of the

POLICE have succeeded in putting one of
Korumburra’s young hoon drivers off the
road after 19 year old Kayle Hansen had his
licence suspended for 18 months in the Ko -
rumburra Magistrates’ Court recently.
They told the court that Hansen had made
a particular nuisance of himself around the
town between April and August last year,
spinning the wheels, over-revving and fish-
tailing his unroadworthy Ford XR6 to the
point that local residents went into action,
following him and taking down the car’s li-
cence number in an effort to assist police.
Here are some of the incidents for which
he was brought to court on Thursday, Janu-
ary 19 on ‘driving in a manner dangerous’
• April 21, 2016: Witnessed doing burn-
outs and doughnuts in Shellcotts Road.
• May 13, 2016: Allegedly yelled abuse at
another driver in Commercial Street, spin-
ning wheels and fish-tailing into South Rail-
• May 18, 2016: At the Korumburra
Showgrounds, allegedly overtook a learner
driver at 60km/h which he was practicing
at 10km/h, accelerated, spun wheels and
fishtailed. Father of learner asked him to go
elsewhere but did another burnout near the
• June 19, 2016: Witness, alerted to the
car’s noise in Lower Gordon Street, reported
seeing Hansen’s car swerving, fish-tailing and
accelerating heavily in Commercial Street.
• June 27, 2016: Seen by police driving in
Commercial Street without displaying a de-
fect notice, bald tyres (steel belts visible), no
rear P-plate, manual transmission.
• August 10, 2016: Stopped by police driv-
ing a manual car on an auto licence without
But, having handed down a $2000 fine and
a hefty licence suspension, Magistrate Clive
Alsop wasn’t done with.
He also gave the youngster a withering lec-
ture while requiring him to undertake a safe
driving course before he comes back to ap-
ply for his licence again.
“Have you ever been in the Austin Hos-
pital’s crash unit, young man? Well I have.
Have you seen newspaper reports of crash-
es? Well, you were one step away from that, ”
Magistrate Alsop said.
“ What if someone stepped out on to the
road? Do you know how long you’d be in jail
if you killed someone?
“ Has it ever occurred to you that this sort
of driving could lead to that?” he said.
“ The only thing keeping you out of prison
today is a lack of priors... but if you drive
like that again, you are facing the prospect
of going to jail. ”
