Dangerous dog-owning 'bully' let pets maul neighbour in 'terrifying' attack after throwing poo into victim's garden
A dangerous dog-owning "bully" who let his pets maul his neighbour has avoided immediate prison.
Nathan Lutton, aged 26, stood and watched as his dogs Tyson, Ted and Patch charged at father and son Graeme and Ethan Currie. The dogs sunk their teeth into the victims' legs, leaving puncture wounds and bruises.
Shrewsbury Crown Court heard that a row started after Lutton had been throwing dog poo out of the window of his upstairs flat in Middlegate, Harlescott, Shrewsbury. The faeces landed in the garden, which was Ethan's property.
On the day of the dog attack - July 8, 2021 - Ethan and Graeme were putting up fencing to try and stop Lutton hurling poo into the garden. Lutton came to his window and engaged in a row with Ethan, who demanded he come downstairs and clean up the dog dirt.
When Lutton went down and opened the door, his English bulldogs Tyson and Ted, as well as Staffy cross Patch, charged out to attack. Tyson and Ted bit the men, while Patch surrounded them.
