Dog owner denies charges.

A dog owner denied two charges relating to an attack in which a young girl was nearly killed and left permanently scarred.

Jean Bernadette Harvey (23) entered not guilty pleas to two charges of allowing a dog to enter a private place and injure her next door neighbour Leah Preston, contrary to the 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act.

The charges relate to an attack by two bull mastiff cross-breeds on May 16, last year. The girl, who was aged five at the time of the attack, suffered bite wounds to her legs and buttocks after being mauled by the two dogs in her family's front garden.
