Owner spared prison after dogs launch vicious attack against another
The owner of two Staffordshire bull terriers which attacked another dog and its owner on a footpath was today (Friday) given a suspended jail sentence at Lincoln Crown Court.
The two staffies escaped from the garden of their owner Benjamin Copeland’s home and were running loose along the path in Tydd St Mary when they pounced on a Boxer dog out for a walk with her owner Derek Hall.
Martin Hurst, prosecuting, said: “The two dogs ran past Mr Hall and instantly attacked his dog Ella. One went for the front and the other for the back.
