Dog fine as a warning

CENTRAL Highlands Regional Council is using the case of a former Bluff woman fined $2000 in Blackwater Magistrates Court last month as an example to other dog owners.

Salli Thompson pleaded guilty to the charge of allowing a dog to attack a human and was also ordered to pay $71.70 in court costs.

Council officer Robert Maher said Ms Thompson's cattledogs had escaped their yard and bitten two people.

Ms Thompson had received an earlier warning.
