Runcorn man denies responsibility for dog attack

A fifteen year old girl was hospitalised earlier this year following a dog attack that left her with a broken wrist. The dog bite occurred at an address in Prescott.

The case was brought before Liverpool Magistrates’ Court this week. The owner of the Japanese Tosa has denied ‘being in charge of a dog dangerously out of control causing injury’.

The man, 34, also pleaded not guilty to possessing a fighting dog. However, under the ‘Dangerous Dogs Act 1991’, the Japanese Tosa is classed as a fighting dog – the breed has been banned in the UK.

The owner of the dog could face up to five years in prison if found guilty of the offence. A preliminary hearing will take place later this month at Liverpool Crown Court.
