In British Manchester, the court acquitted 84-year-old dog owner in the case of alleged attack by his pet on the other person, as he acknowledged the dog was too big so he could attack someone. This writes the tabloid the Daily Mail.

As argued in court, the cyclist, at that moment, the growling Bear rushed (according to the story, Thorley, Bear – bitch, not a dog – ed.) for it. Ostholt tried to protect his dog, which he allegedly bit her on the leg.
The owner of the Bears said that his dog is morbidly obese (weighs almost 50 kg) and can not run, since the run starts to choke. Your pet inherited, Thorley from another owner, the pensioner described as calm and kind dog to get along with people and other dogs.
