A MAN has appeared in court for having a dog dangerously out of control.

Kenneth Feazey, of Campbell Road, Llandybie pleaded guilty to the offence at Llanelli Magistrates’ Court.

Feazey, 61, admitted to being the owner of a dog, named Junior, which was dangerously out of control in Llandeilo Road, Llandybie, where it injured a man, on July 31, last year.

The court imposed a Contingent Destruction Order on the animal.

The courts said that unless the dog is kept under proper control by being securely held on a lead by a person aged at least 16, being securely fitted with a muzzle to prevent it biting a person, is placed in a cage prior to opening the door to visitors, it must be destroyed.

It adds that Junior, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, is neutered by March 17, 2021.

Feazey was made to pay £1,629 compensation, a victim surcharge of £95 and £85 in costs to the Crown Prosecution Service.

This makes a total of £1,809 to be paid.

Feazey was given a community order and must carry out 200 hours of unpaid work within the next twelve months.
