A Queenstown dog owner has been fined $200 after a German
shepherd bit a female runner on Wednesday morning.
The dog has now been given a ''menacing dog'' classification
by Lakes Environmental, meaning it must be muzzled any time
it leaves the Arthurs Point property, regulatory and
corporate manager Lee Webster said.
The Queenstown police were called to McChesney Rd about
9.30am, after the runner had been bitten on the back of her
thigh and required medical attention at the Lakes District
Mr Webster said the dog had a history of wandering in the
neighbourhood and was unrestrained that morning.
