UK traffic wardens put a parking ticket on a dog because they claimed its owner had left the three-year-old terrier tied up in the wrong place.

Ingeburg Kaminski, 75, had just come out of a shop when she found her dog Tessa sporting the £35 ($67 NZD) ticket on her collar.

"I was only away for 20 minutes. They said Tessa had been left in the wrong place and was blocking the pavement," said Ingeburg, from Essen in the west of Germany.

"But she was sitting quietly and people had plenty of room to walk around her. She's sweet and tiny and loves attention - she'd never hurt anyone."
