A WOMAN appeared before Huddersfield magistrates after her Staffordshire bull terrier attacked two other dogs.
Gemma Neary, 22, of Heather Road, Meltham, admitted letting her dog become dangerously out of control at Slades Lane in Helme.
Carol Holberry, prosecuting for Kirklees Council, said on September 18 last year a woman was walking her dog when the bull terrier ran out of a snicket and grabbed her dog.
The woman managed to pick up her dog - but the bull terrier jumped up, trying to reach it.
Mrs Holberry said: "She was afraid the dog was going to bite her. A neighbour managed to shoo the dog away."
On September 23, another woman was out walking with her daughter and two dogs.
On Slades Lane, the bull terrier ran out from a nearby riding school and barked and snarled towards the pair.
It grabbed hold of the woman's dog by the throat. She lifted her dog but the bull terrier kept jumping up.
A woman came out of the riding school and took control of the bull terrier.
The dog which was attacked suffered puncture wounds in its chest, a cracked rib and was suffering from shock. It had to be given painkillers and antibiotics.
On October 7, two Kirklees Council dog wardens visited the riding school and were told the bull terrier belonged to Neary.
Magistrates ordered her to keep the dog under control on a lead at all times in public places. She was ordered to pay £345 costs.
* Paul Adams, of Fernside Avenue, Almondbury, also appeared before the court and admitted letting his three boxer dogs become dangerously out of control on November 22.
Mrs Holberry said Adams was walking the dogs near Standard Fireworks at Crosland Moor when they attacked another boxer dog.
Adams was ordered to keep his dogs under control by keeping them on leads and muzzling them when they were in public places.
Unemployed Adams was also ordered to pay £150 costs.
