A 35-year-old woman is the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal after an incident in which an 81-year-old woman was bitten by a dog in Ardbeg at 7.30pm on Saturday.

The same dog also bit a puppy which then required extensive treatment from a vet for its injuries.

A report was also sent to Argyll and Bute Council’s dog warden, and the 35-year-old will be the subject of a ‘dog control notice’ as a result.
