A woman surnamed Guo won about 10,000 yuan ($1,600) as compensation in a lawsuit against a dog breeder whose animals bit her, killed her pet dog and led to her abortion, the Beijing Times reported.

Guo, who lives in Changping district, was attacked by two big dogs when walking her poodle in Xinlong village with her husband. Though her husband tried to fight against the two dogs, the poodle was bitten to death and his wife was bitten in her finger. Guo, 33, had to get vaccinated, and following the suggestion of her doctor and family, she had an abortion. Guo sued the dog breeder in Changping District People's Court, claiming compensation of about 80,000 yuan.

The court determined Guo was also at fault since she did not leash the poodle, and judged the compensation at 10,500 yuan.
