Dog Owner Fined 700,000 Won for Negligence


A 59-year-old dog owner has been fined 700,000 won by the Busan district court.

The ruling comes as the dog owner has been found guilty of negligence when the dog attacked and injured another apartment residents leg in an elevator in Busan earlier this year.

The attack hospitalized the victim for three weeks.

The court said that pet owners are obliged to take responsible care to control their pets by keeping them on a leash or cover their mouths to prevent them from attacking people.
