Owner bashed girl, 15, over pig

A WOMAN was so angry about a 15-year-old girl tormenting her beloved pet pig she dragged her along the ground by her hair and bashed her repeatedly.

Lisa Narelle Johnson, 42, was having a small gathering at her house in Lowood on New Year's Eve in 2010 and a fight broke out about the young girl harassing the pet hog.

Johnson and the girl started arguing, so the girl fled about 1am.

Johnson spent hours tracking down the teen to have it out with her. By 4.30am Johnson had located the young pig-teaser and attacked her, pulling her by the hair towards her car.

She punched the girl in the head and knocked her to the ground, and then continued to strike her in the face. The girl managed to escape before she was put in the vehicle and called police.

Earlier in the night, at 2am, Johnson went to the girl's mother's house and demanded she tell her where the teen was so she could pay her back for teasing the pig.

The mother refused so Johnson grabbed the woman by the hair and dragged her along the ground towards her car, repeatedly punching her in the face.

The mother's screams alerted neighbours, who intervened, but she was left with bruising to her face, arms and torso.

Johnson yesterday pleaded guilty at Ipswich Magistrates Court to two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm.

She was put on 12 months probation.

Johnson also pleaded guilty to using a carriage service to menace or cause offence, after a neighbour failed to pay for his share of fixing a fence and she spent three months making multiple calls to him at the start of this year.

Johnson called the man when he was in Tasmania for his mother's funeral and said "I don't give a s*** about your personal situation - this has been going on for months - your mother didn't die months ago. Now your mother is finally in the ground you can finally pay your bills".

For this offence she was released on a $1500, two-year good behaviour bond.
