Kate Bisset, mitigating, said Chambers was sorry for what had happened and had kept her dog muzzled and on a lead since the incident.
Miss Bisset said Chambers had been diagnosed with a mental health condition which led to her being abusive when confronted by others after the incident.I guess 'Being a typical benefit-scrounging aggressive chav dog owner' is listed in Campbell's Psychiatric Dictionary, now?
Judge Tom Bayliss, QC, said: "You knew the dog in the past had behaved aggressively towards other dogs and you allowed it to just get out of control and attack this woman."Leading to the pensioner requiring a skin graft. So she'll get the book thrown at her?
Chambers was given a four-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to take part in a 20-day rehabilitation programme.
She was also ordered to comply with an order requiring her to keep Bella muzzled and on a lead when out in public, or face having the animal put down.An order requiring the destruction of the wrong aggressive bitch, then?
