A woman has been injured by a dog which escaped after biting its way out of a chain around its neck.
The Alsatian cross breed type dog escaped on May 18 last year before injuring Emily Ormes.
Sharon Foster, of High Road in Whaplode, near Spalding, will be sentenced next month after she admitted having a dog which was out-of-control when it injured the victim.
Should be an open and shut case.
James Gray, mitigating, asked for Foster to be sentenced straight away and said some safety measures had been taken to look after the dog.
Mr Gray told the court: "It wasn't that there weren't any safety measures, but they proved insufficient."
Well, that's something of an understatement. Not that you need to work too hard, as usual.
Judge Andrew Easteal adjourned sentence for the preparation of a probation report on Foster but told her she would not face jail.
The judge said it was a "terrible incident" for the victim but added that Foster had not previously been before the courts.
Typical lack of justice.
