John Grainger, 62, was severely injured and needed reconstructive surgery on his face after a Staffordshire Bull Terrier attacked him last August. Then the owner, Joseph Bowers, 49, casually walked away without offering help.
He was given a nine month jail sentence, suspended for 18 months and banned indefinitely from owning a dog.
Last week Bowers was caught on a surveillance camera walking a dog. The police were notified and when an officer approached Bowers, he had one of the classically stupid excuses we’ve heard.
He said it must have been his identical twin brother who had been walking the dog.
Since no twin had surfaced in the 49 years of his life, he admitted he had been lying and had to plead guilty for breaking the ban. Bowers will appear in July for sentencing.
(My evil twin Skippy enjoyed this story too.)
