Police seize dog in Gosport

Police have arrested a man and seized a dog following an incident on Gosport High Street on Wednesday 11th December 11 just after 1pm.

It follows a report of the dog biting a man.

A 27-year-old man from Gosport has been arrested on suspicion of failing to comply with a dog control order and allowing his dog to be dangerously out of control in a public place.

We are treating this matter so seriously as a previous incident involving this dog was reported and a dog control order was in place. It was in the interests of public safety that the dog was taken off the streets before it could potentially end up biting another person, or more seriously, a child.”
