A woman and a teenager have pleaded guilty to being in charge of a 115lb dog called 'Beast' that mauled a schoolboy to death.
At Cardiff Crown Court today Salter, of Trethomas, Caerphilly, admitted being a person in charge of a dog dangerously out of control, causing injury resulting in Jack's death.
Hayden, of Penyrheol, Caerphilly, pleaded guilty to being the owner of the dog that killed Jack.
The teenager also admitted five offences of owning a dog dangerously out of control between November 4 and 7.
The court heard two of those incidents resulted in injuries to two members of the public, Michael Ball and Sian Sullivan.
And if they'd reported it, maybe, just maybe, action would have been taken and the child would still have been alive right now.
Judge Fitton QC set a date for sentencing on June 10. He granted both bail but said: 'The likely outcome, particularly for Mr Hayden, is there will be an immediate custody.'
Hayden was also told he must not upload any photos of himself with dogs online.
Salter was told not to have any contact with children under the age of 18 unless granted by social services.
Too little, too late. And why no condemnation for the parents who were seemingly unconcerned at their child visiting a house with one of these things in it?
