Dangerous dog owner fined $2000 for not complying with conditions

THE owner of a dangerous dog has been fined $2000 for not complying with orders.

Tor Kristian Romsloe was charged with being the owner of a declared dangerous dog and failing to ensure the entrances to the premises had warning signs displayed. He was also charged with having a dangerous dog that was not muzzled and failing to ensure the dog wore an appropriate collar.

The case went to trial and Romsloe was not in Mandurah Magistrates Court when he was sentenced on June 11.

The City of Rockingham prosecutor said Romsloe’s Staffordshire Terrier named Loki was declared a dangerous dog on May 24 last year.

Rangers went to inspect the Singleton property on June 21 and no one was home.

He said there were no warning sign and the rangers could see Loki did not have a prescribed collar on and was not wearing a muzzle. There was also no enclosure.
