The owner of a hunting dog who bit a mother and daughter while taking a walk in Mungyeong, North Gyeongsang Province, has been sentenced to two years in prison. 

According to the legal community today (28th), the criminal department of the Daegu District Court's Resident Support Division (Chief Judge Hwang Seong-wook) sentenced a 66-year-old dog owner A, who was charged with violating the Animal Protection Act and serious negligence, to two years in prison. 

On July 25, Mr. A was handed over to trial on charges of putting a woman in her 40s and a woman in her 60s in critical condition by releasing 6 dogs, including 3 hunting dogs and 3 mixed dogs, from a trail in Yeongsun-myeon, Mungyeong.

At that time, six dogs were not wearing leashes or muzzles, and two women, mother and daughter, were dragged along a distance of 400 meters and seriously injured.

In particular, it is known that a woman in her 60s had her scalp peeled, revealing her skull and necrosis of her ear tissue. 

As a result of the police investigation, it was found that Mr. A did not take safety measures such as muzzles and leashes for dogs and caused injuries to residents in the past.    

The court ruled, "Even if the victims recover their physical health, there is a very high probability that the trauma of being attacked by hounds will remain as an indelible wound." 

He explained the reason for the sentencing, saying, "The accused did not receive forgiveness from the victims."
