Niece’s fury over neighbour’s dog

A WOMAN took exception to her aunt’s “neighbours from hell” and decided to confront them over their barking dog, a court was told.

Prosecutor Robert Pawson told Southampton Crown Court how Natasha Bowles was speaking to her aunt when she heard a dog barking in the background while a child was trying to sleep.

She decided to go and confront the neighbour Tracey Clouder who owned the animal, threatening her while holding a bottle in her hand.

Bowles admitted committing a public order offence as a result of the incident that took place in Freemantle Common Road, Southampton, in June 2011.

Mitigating for Bowles, of Wellow Close, Southampton, Christopher Wing described the 26-year-old’s actions as “ill judged”. He added that she had in the past suffered from mental health issues but things had “settled down” in recent months.

Judge Peter Ralls QC sentenced her to a 12-month community and supervision order. No costs or compensation were ordered.

I can't. It doesn't even say what type of dog it was.

I think it is described quite well. They have even given the dogs name.

All it says is the dog's name, and that it was holding a bottle. We don't even know what colour shell suit it was wearing.
