Ban and fine for dog owner after pet’s ‘frenzied’ attack on woman

Mum-of-two Hayley Spencer had been walking her two border terriers, Harley and Alfie, when she was bitten by Louis, a Staffordshire bull terrier lurcher cross.

That dog’s owner, David Hiller, 41, of Melksham, admitted having an out-of-control dog when he appeared before Bath magistrates last week. He was banned from owning a dog for two years and ordered to carry out 80 hours community service. He must also pay Hayley £1,000 compensation while the dog has to be muzzled in public.

Hayley, who was left with scarring on her right leg, said Louis had gone “into a frenzy” and clamped his jaws around her right knee.

“There was lots of blood and I was trembling from head to toe and felt my legs go from under me as I fell to the ground.”

She says Hillier had “walked away” from the incident, leaving her on the ground and Harley injured.
