DNA tests on dogs seized in police swoops (UK)

DNA tests on dogs seized in police swoops

POLICE and RSPCA officers in West Yorkshire have seized four dogs and arrested two men after executing search warrants under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

They seized the animals at an address in Liversedge and an address in Heckmondwike on Saturday.

The dogs are being held by police, who said DNA and other tests would be carried out to confirm the breeds.

Two local men have been arrested on suspicion of offences under the Act and will be questioned by police.

The raids were carried out after information about the dogs was passed to police.

Chief Supt Barry South, of the West Yorkshire force, said: "This operation demonstrates our commitment to tackling problem dogs within the community and our investigation is to establish whether any offences have been committed under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

"Where we have information that people are keeping or breeding dogs that are
illegal we will take positive action and act on this information.

"Clearly anyone that has concerns should contact us."

Merseyside Police have seized 14 pit bull terriers as part of a raid on a suspected dog fighting training area, it was announced yesterday.

The move came after Ellie Lawrenson, five, was mauled to death by a terrier of the pit bull type while staying at her grandmother' s home in St Helens on New Year's Day.

Police seized seven pit bull terriers and a puppy from a house in the Croxteth Country Estate district of Liverpool on
Friday and arrested a man aged 37. He was later released on police bail pending further inquiries.

On Saturday officers swooped on an industrial site in the city's Norris Green area where they found a further 14 dogs of various ages.

RSPCA chief inspector Mike Butcher said: "We are currently assessing the health of the diseased dogs and assessing if the wounds some of them carry are consistent with dog fighting.

"Dog fighting is a brutal and organised crime of which dogs are the victims. Sadly this dreadful and barbaric sport is still carried out in pockets across Britain."
