Dognapping on the increase Print E-mail
Monday, 19 June 2017 11:25

It's alarming to discover that five dogs are reported stolen every day.  Last year 1774 dog thefts were reported to the police which is a 19% increase on the previous year.  And it is thought that the numbers may be higher as not everybody reports a dog theft.  The majority of dogs are stolen from their owners' garden or from outside shops but some vanish on walks.  What happens to them?  Depending on age, breed and sex, some are sold online, others end up on puppy farms.  A minority are used as bait in dog fights.  Unfortunately the police tend to regard dog theft in the same way as any other "property" such as a mobile phone - rather than as a treasured member of your family.
