Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
