A pensioner whose dog escaped and bit a five year old has been fined £200 and ordered to pay £250 compensation by a Sheriff at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

The boy had been playing near his home when he was attacked by the Lakeland Terrier.  The dog was seen to run towards him and jump up at him.  The dog then bit him on his right cheek.  The child, who cannot be named for legal reasons, could be left with permanent scarring. 

The owner of the dog admitted to being the owner of a dangerously out of control dog.  The Sheriff commented that he was impressed by the remorse that the owner expressed.  The dog was put down on the day of the attack and the owner was banned from having a dog for three years.
