A South West man has been fined after his dog bit the arm of a police officer during a routine roadside breath test in Bridgetown. Steven Grant Munyard pleaded guilty in Manjimup Magistrates Court on Thursday to having control of an animal that attacked a person and caused injury, after his dog attacked a police officer during a roadside breath test. Just after midday on January 29 Munyard was stopped while travelling on South Western Highway near Bridgetown to undergo an alcohol breath test. As the police officer conducting the test approached the vehicle Munyard “accidentally” opened the rear driver’s side window instead of his own. The court was told the dog was unchained in the back seat and once the window was opened reached its head through the window and bit into the forearm of the police officer, causing bleeding. Munyard told the court his dog was already “on edge” after being involved in an incident days prior in which two people kicked the side of his car while the dog was in the vehicle. Munyard said he was deeply “remorseful” over the incident and he was a “responsible dog owner.” He was fined $300 over the dog attack.
