Dog Attack: owner fined

From: Tanki <5191 ...="" gmail.com="">

A BUSINESSMAN whose two Rottweilers bit a man at Toh Tuck Road was
fined $3,000 on Tuesday.

Wu Wai Hong, 61, admitted that his dogs caused injury to Mr Seah Jeng
Jye, 42, on his left shin on Oct 10 last year.

Mr Seah was finishing his morning exercise and was walking back to his
condominium off Jalan Jurong Kechil that morning when he was attacked
by Wu's two unattended Rottweilers. He had three scratches on his left
shin region.

The attack only stopped after the victim managed to climb onto a
nearby ledge.

The prosecution said that Wu had compensated Mr Sim $1,600, and $5,000
to a second victim, along with an apology. A second charge was taken
into consideration during his sentencing.

He could have been fined up to $5,000 under the Miscellaneous Offences
(Public Order and Nuisance) Act.
