A man from Sandwich has been sentenced for allowing his dog to be out of control and causing injury.
Mark Lucene Edward Blackburn, 54, of Stonar Close, was the owner of a dog which was dangerously out of control and injured a man outside the house on Christmas Eve last year.
He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 28 days in prison, suspended for six months, and also handed a contingent destruction order at Channel Magistrates’ Court, Folkestone, on June 2.
The owner must keep the animal muzzled in public and kept on a lead at all times to ensure this doesn’t happen.
