Dangerous border collie attacks woman and leaves her needing hospital treatment
Date of alert:
Friday, 11 August 2023
A dog owner has been issued with a restraining order after his dog bit a female dog walker while dangerously out of control. The order prevents Richard Hignett, 69, of Victory Row, Royal Wootton Bassett, from taking his border collie, Trim, to any public place without a lead and a muzzle.
The order lasts until August 7, 2024, and if it is breached then it is an arrestable offence. The order follows an incident on October 27 last year, in fields near Royal Wootton Bassett, when a woman in her 20s was approached by the border collie while walking her own dogs.
