Since February police have seized five dogs in Caerphilly on suspicion of being banned breeds, Gwent Police has confirmed. In February WalesOnline previously reported that 13 dogs had been seized by the force since the beginning of the year.
It means so far in 2023, 18 dogs have been removed from their owners in the borough. The crackdown came after 10-year-old schoolboy Jack Lis from the area died after sustaining "catastrophic and unsurvivable" injuries after a dog attack in November 2021.
