Ru­mours un­founded

Central Leader - - NEWS -

On­line ru­mours about fake an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cers scour­ing Auck­land sub­urbs to ‘steal dogs’ are com­pletely un­founded, the coun­cil says. The ru­mours be­gan sev­eral weeks ago on a num­ber of Face­book pages due to con­cern over a per­son im­per­son­at­ing an an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cer in the Waikato. The po­lice are aware of this case. Pic­tures of gen­uine An­i­mal Man­age­ment staff and ve­hi­cles have been posted on so­cial me­dia sites, claim­ing that they are im­posters. Con­tact the coun­cil on 301 0101.
