Dog Seized by South Wales Police?

According to official numbers presented by South Wales Police, the number of dogs they seize is growing year by year.  Between 2008 and 2009, the Police seized 7 dogs. Between 2010 and 2011, this had increased to 59. Between 2012 and 2013, this had gone up to 132.

Perhaps more upsettingly, between 2012 and 2015 the South Wales Police destroyed 135 dogs – though only 69 of those dogs had been seized due to aggravated offence. This means that over these years over 60 dogs have been destroyed by the South Wales Police without causing anyone a serious injury.

This is because of the Dangerous Dogs Law act, which is seeing police across the country take more action than before against dogs not kept under proper control and banned dog breeds, many of which haven’t hurt anyone and may well have been wrongly seized.
