GBP 300 injury compensation payout for dog attack

A woman who was attacked by a dog while on her way to her mother’s has received GBP 300 in injury compensation.

Pauline Saunders was set upon by Kane, a Staffordshire bull terrier cross, who clawed and bit her, leaving a 2cm-deep wound in her leg, the Berrows Journal reports.

"It ran straight at her, barking, baring its teeth, biting and clawing the back of her leg," the paper reports prosecutor Sallie Hewitt as saying.

The wound required hospital treatment and left bruising and scratch marks where she was attacked.

Additionally, the dog reportedly had a history of complaints related to it and had frequently been left out in the street in the past.

Ms Saunders was awarded GBP 300 in injury compensation, while the dog was ordered to be muzzled when in public.

The incident follows the GBP 25,000 injury compensation awarded to the family of a toddler mauled by a bull mastiff at a Cumbrian hotel.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19400451-ADNFCR
