A Conisborough Butcher and his Dog

Alfred Ward, butcher, Conisbro, was summoned for not having his dog muzzled.

He pleaded that the dog had only been a short time out of the site, and that he had a muzzle for eight. He exhibited the muzzle to the bench. – A leather one.

Lord Auckland said that kind of make would not do; it was not sufficiently secure. On the 21st of the month a list of new regulations would be out, and that every dog must be effectively muzzled.

The costs were 18 s 6d and this had to be paid.
