No dog licences

Hertfordshire Mercury, 13th November 1915


At Ware Petty Sessions on Tuesday, William Page, of 75 High Oak Road, Ware, was summoned for keeping a dog without a licence.  He did not appear, and PC Bignell said that on Friday, October 29, he saw a black lurcher dog on the defendant’s premises.  When asked if he had a licence the defendant said he had not; the dog was the property of his son in the Army and he would write to his son to see if he would like a licence taken out.  Supt Handley said a licence had since been taken out.  The defendant was fined 4 shillings.

George Pakes, of 2 New Road, Ware, was also fined 4 shillings for a similar offence.  He did not appear.  PC Winters said he saw a dog on the defendant’s premises.  The defendant’s wife said a licence was not required as the dog was not yet four months old.  The witness made inquiries and found the dog was born a fortnight after Christmas, 1914.  Supt Handley said a licence was taken out the same day that the Constable called.
