Man charged, owning a dog dangerously out of control

A 29 year old man has been charged, after his dog fatally injured a man in Huddersfield in August last year. 

David Ellam, 52 died in hospital after suffering life-threatening injuries after being bitten by a dog near to his home in Sheepbridge. 

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: “The dog was euthanised with consent of the owner in late 2016 after vets independently evaluated that it was suffering from a terminal illness and destruction was the most humane course of action.”
