Ystrad. Monday


Ystrad. Monday Before the Stipendiary, Alderman Richard Lewis, Alderman W. H. Mathias, Councillors D. J. Williams, M.F.H., and D. W. Davies. SHOULD SHEEP DOGS BE EXEMPTED? John Evans, farm servant, Ton, Pentre, was summoned for working his sheep dog on the road without a muzzle. Defendant said he was working three sheep with the dog, and it was impossible to do so when the dog had the muzzle on. It prevented the dog having any control whatever over the sheep. The Stipendiary: We have discussed the mat- ter. Unfortunately there is no exception in the Act at all in reference to sheep dogs, and we are compelled to administer the law as we find it. If sheep dog owners petitioned Mr Long, of the Agricultural Department it was quite possible that they would also be exempted As the law stood at present only hunting dogs were exempted. Defendant was fined 5s and costs. JOHNSON'S FIRST CASE. William Royal, Ystrad Road, Ystrad Rhon- dda, was summoned for committing a nuisance in Ystrad Road on the 9th inst. P.C.
