Humphreys, of Ambrook Road, Belvedere, was given a six-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months and banned from owning or caring for dogs for five years.Just great…
Still, at least neutering and muzzling was ordered, albeit for the wrong party:
Humphreys has been ordered to pay £500 compensation to Mrs Flint and will be supervised by probation officers for six months.Anyone want to guess who’ll be paying that money..? I don’t think it’s going to be the 25 year old jobless waster, is it?
Magistrates ruled the dog be neutered and muzzled and on a lead at all times when out.
Humphreys must also pay £100 court costs.
Oh, and why no charges for this?
Police were called to the scene and PC Colin Bassett found Mrs Flint sitting on a bench cradling Evie’s body.Let’s hope the next person it bites is a magistrate…
Humphreys was still at the scene, intoxicated and unsteady on his feet.
When PC Bassett tried to arrest Humphreys he was bitten by Bullseye on his right elbow.
But I can't help reading this and wondering why I'm bothering to work, and pay taxes, simply in order to keep this vile creature in whisky and idleness, its even fouler 'pet' in Bonio, and a bunch of pointless wastes of spaces on the bench handing out 'punishment' designed to do little but keep yet another bunch of public sector workers gainfully employed.
Perhaps I'm the one who's out of step?
