The Only Unusual Thing Is The Type Of Bull Terrier…

The court heard how Billy attacked Mr Thompson at Showpa Plastics factory, Landywood Lane, Cheslyn Hay when the dog escaped.
The dog pulled off his glove then went on to bite his stomach, left calf, left buttock and chest. At the court yesterday, magistrates ordered Humpage to pay £5,000 in compensation to the victim, along with an £80 victim surcharge and £185 costs to the prosecution.
He must also carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.
A destruction order was placed on Billy and a control order on Saskia with conditions that she be on a lead no longer than 1.5 metres when out in public and that she be muzzled.
Wonders will never cease! Not a Staffie this time, or a pitbull, despite being owned by a man who looks like the personification of stocky inbred aggressiveness – these were English bull terriers.
Miss Sarb Sehmi, defending Humpage, who is a father of three girls, aged 10, 11 and 16, said that the attack had ‘absolutely devastated’ her client.
Yeah. I’m sure. He looks the sensitive type…

It happened at 3am, so easy to get owner and dog confused in the dark, but seriously why was the owner in a scrapyard at 3am and why was the victim at work at 3am unless he was a cleaner, in which case why was the door of the factory open so the dog could attack him?

Yes, given the time of day I'd imagine it was part of some feud rather than a random attack.

"It happened at 3am...."

I took that to be the time the escape happened, not necessarily the time of the attack.
