Three dog owners in Leeds were landed with hefty bills after being prosecuted for flouting dog control orders.
The man and two women failed to pay £75 fixed penalty notices handed out for allowing their pets to wander freely on the streets.
Under new rules introduced in January 2012, people must keep dogs on a lead at all times on all carriageways and adjacent footpaths and grass verges. The rules are intended to prevent dogs from running on to roads.
The council took legal action against Nicola Wilmore of Throstle Lane, Middleton, Christopher Tiffany of Neville Grove, Osmondthorpe, and Amanda Mitchell of Landseer Drive, Bramley.
Wilmore was ordered to pay a £75 fine, plus £415.53 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge, Tiffany was given a £100 fine, plus £446.53 costs and a £15 victim surcharge and Mitchell was given a £75 fine and ordered to pay £386.53 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
