A Welcome Bay woman accused of using her pitbull dog to attack her sister during an altercation at her home last year is denying the charges at trial.

Phillipa Bayley, 54, appeared in the Tauranga District Court on Monday for the start of her three-day jury trial.

She is charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The court has heard how Bayley’s sister, Liz Smith from Kawerau, thought she was going to die when she was attacked by the pitpull puppy.

It is alleged Bayley hit her sister several times with her fists and a stone chess piece, and encouraged her American pitbull puppy to attack her face and head on May 21, last year.

Liz suffered serious injuries including multiple tears to her scalp, nose, ears and lips.

Bayley alleges her sister provoked the attack by scratching her in the face and punching during the argument.

Liz denies the allegations.

Tauranga City Council animal welfare team leader Brent Lincoln says he is confident the pitbull puppy did assist in the attack.

Phillipa told SunLive just after the attack her dog was not involved.
