Dog bit boy in Laughing Dog
A LANDLORD of a pub called The Laughing Dog has been ordered to pay £75 compensation to a family – after his dog bit a little boy on the nose.
The four-year-old was having Sunday lunch with his parents when Kim Pruett’s Collie nipped him.
A court heard the youngster’s parents were tucking into their roast dinners when they heard a “snapping sound”.
They turned to see their little boy bleeding from teeth marks on his nose.
Pruett, 40, admitted being the owner of a dog that was dangerously out of control.
JPs at Llandrindod Wells, Powys, spared the dog’s life but ordered him to be muzzled in future and barred from public areas of the pub the village of Howey.
Pruett was given a 16-month conditional discharge as well as the compo order.
