Man Bites Dog

‘A KENYAN farmer charged over a dog bite injury has refused to have his fingerprints taken – telling police they should take the animal’s paw prints instead.

Tea farmer Karuga Koinange, from Kiambu, insisted his German Shepherd be charged instead of him for biting a farm worker.

Koinange argued he was not the dog’s keeper and accused the police of intimidating him while the real culprit, the dog, walked free.

However, he was forced to have his fingerprints taken at a local court where he was charged with causing injury to the worker by failing to lock up his dog.’
