Ms. O'Connor stated that there were a number of differences between the markings of the animal and the markings description contained within the passport but the microchip number was in agreement. She stated that she could not positively identify Annie Clouds from the documentation submitted. Patrick Neville, trainer of Annie Clouds admitted that he had failed to comply with R8(A)(2) by not checking the markings when receiving the animal and furthermore had failed to endorse the passport.
