Dog worried poultry
   At Wigan County Magistrates' Court on Friday, Herbert Stanley Webster (56) of Inglenook, Hall Lane, Wrightington, pleaded guilty by letter to being the owner of a dog which had worried poultry, belonging to Harry Pendlebury at Shapps Farm, Robin Lane, Wrightington.
   Pol. Cons. Ashworth said he received a complaint from Mr. Pendlebury on 26th August concerning his poultry. Witness went to the farm and in a field there saw 56 pullets, most of them being dead. Later, he saw Webster at his home; he had previously visited the farm and knew what had happened.
   In his letter to the Court, Webster stated that he had compensated Mr. Pendlebury for his loss and that the dog had since been destroyed. As owner of the dog he pleaded guilty to the offence.
   The Chairman (Mr. Dan Bennett) remarked that it was a proper case to bring before the court and that Webster who had compensated Mr. Pendlebury, would be given an absolute discharge on payment of costs.
