Dog escapes from Death Row in Cardiff

A dangerous dog has ‘escaped’ from a death row kennel in Cardiff on Tuesday, as persons unknown sprung the dog on the very day that time elapsed for any appeals against its destruction.

The dog, a Staffordshire cross with the name of Tank, was responsible for biting nine people on May 25th in Cardiff. Tank was in the care of a 14-year-old girl, who was found guilty of having an ‘out of control’ dangerous dog. An order for Tank’s destruction was placed by the court.

The general public are being warned to steer clear of the dog if they see it, he’s extremely dangerous. South Wales Police are currently seeking the dog in the area, and hope to find him before he attacks anyone else.

If you see the dog you’re advised to call 02920 634 172 and ask for PC Mel Giles.
