MAN BITES DOG (allegedly)

The opportunity for the classic headline has arisen at last.  A 34-year-old blind man has been charged with breach of the peace and animal cruelty by biting his guide dog on the head as well as kicking it in the body.  The incident apparently occurred outside the Meadowbank Retail Park in Edinburgh in February 2005.  The dog is now in the care of the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.
