Q33: There is a dog that lives down the street and the owner lets it out not on a lead and it has bitten me

You can report the incident to Police Scotland by dialling 101. There is an offence of having a dog dangerously out of control in a public place. The dog owner (or the person for the time being in charge of the dog) may be prosecuted and could face imprisonment and/or a fine and the courts can make a variety of orders in relation to the dog, which range from muzzling to destruction.
