Couple Pleads Guilty to Charges After Their Dogs Attacked Passers-by


Couple Pleads Guilty to Charges After Their Dogs Attacked Passers-by

Glen and Shermain Prosper, owners of three brown dogs that ferociously attacked two passers-by in Lightfoot last year, have entered pleas to multiple charges.

The incident, which occurred in December 2022, resulted in charges of causing their dogs to attack, failing to register and microchip their dogs, allowing their dogs to run at large, and causing their dogs to worry two individuals. Glen took responsibility for the ordeal, allowing his wife to avoid criminal charges.

The complainant and her granddaughter were walking through Lightfoot when they were reportedly attacked by the dogs.

The woman suffered bites on her thigh, back, and leg, while her granddaughter was bitten on the thigh.

The Prospers were granted bail in mid-December and finally had the charges read to them yesterday.

Glen admitted to all of the offences except causing the dogs to attack the two complainants, while his wife denied all of the charges.

The matter will proceed to sentencing on May 31, with fines of up to $500 for each charge or imprisonment for three months possible according to the Dogs Registration and Control Act 2006.

The dogs are believed to have been put down, with the magistrate having the power to order the destruction of dogs that pose a danger.

  1. Are there no other ‘relief’ for the victims, as in bringing a civil suit against, the owner(s) of the dogs?


  2. The right decision was made in the end. I dont understand why these people would want to contest it in the first place! Negligence by the owners!! Glad the owner finally admitted to the charges, I guess he had no choice!
