AWEST LAN­CASHIRE dog owner has been or­dered to pay more than £1,300 for fail­ing to mi­crochip his pet.

Daniel Bradley’s mas­tiff was picked up by West Lan­cashire Bor­ough Coun­cil in Old Skelmers­dale last year af­ter a com­plaint was made by a mem­ber of the pub­lic.

There was no mi­crochip found when the dog was scanned, and the mas­tiff wasn’t wear­ing an iden­tity tag with the owner’s name and ad­dress which all dogs must have by law while out in pub­lic.

Af­ter Mr Bradley, of Woodrow, Skelmers­dale, col­lected his pet, he was given 21 days to get his dog chipped, how­ever, he did not com­ply with the no­tice.

Fail­ing to at­tend court, Mr Bradley was found guilty in his ab­sence and fined more than £1,300 for not fol­low­ing the law re­gard­ing his dog.

Own­ers who fail to com­ply with the reg­u­la­tions can be fined up to £500.
