Dog ripped off delivery driver's finger - Worcester News

A DELIVERY driver who had part of his finger ripped off by a dog appealed for it not to be put down, instead blaming the owner.

Andrew Marshall, the owner of Lola the labrador, was given a curfew and ordered to pay hundreds in compensation when he appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court last Thursday.

Nichola Ritchie, prosecuting, told magistrates that the victim, UPS driver Vaughan Earwalker, went to Marshall’s home in Cartwright Way, Evesham on April 11 last year, and having knocked he decided to post a note to say he had called.

Miss Ritchie said: “He reached to post the note through the door and the next thing he knew the dog had hold of him, and pulled him towards the door.”
