SUPERIOR, Mont. (AP) -- A Missoula man has pleaded guilty to taking the leash off his pit bull, which then attacked a dog and a 59-year-old Milltown man at a campground.

Keegan S. Ginther pleaded guilty Thursday in Mineral County Justice Court to a Fish, Wildlife and Parks citation for having a dog at large in a state campground.

Mick Mee says Ginther's dog bit him in the face twice on Oct. 2, causing wounds that needed 100 stitches to repair.

Justice of the Peace Wanda James told Ginther he likely faced restitution. A sentencing date has not been scheduled.

The Missoulian reports that Mee estimated his medical expenses at about $1,600. He says he appreciated that Ginther took responsibility for the attack.
