A PET owner is accused of leaving a dog unsupervised that allegedly chewed a woman’s hand to her severe injury.

Nicolla May’s Staffordshire Bull Terrier is said to have been dangerously out of control in Scotstoun last May.

Prosecutors claim Ms May left the dog “unsupervised, untethered and unmuzzled” when it ran towards Laurie Smith, Amanda Welsh and their two dogs.

It is said the dogs were repeatedly bitten by Ms May’s dog to their injury and it failed to desist when commanded to do so.

The charge further states Ms May’s dog struggled violently with the two women and a man, Michael Doyle.

It is finally claimed that Ms Smith was repeatedly bitten on her hands to her severe injury.

The incident is said to have taken place in the area’s Earl Street.

Ms May pleaded not guilty today through her lawyer, David McCaig, at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

A trial was set for August 28 by Sheriff Paul Crozier.

Ms May, also of the city’s Scotstoun, had her bail continued meantime.
