Western Mail - - NEWS -

CATS, dogs and horses have been seized in a “har­row­ing” RSPCA and po­lice raid.

A war­rant was ex­e­cuted at a small­hold­ing in Flintshire on Wed­nes­day with a num­ber of an­i­mals seized due to their poor con­di­tion. One horse and a dog were put down due to the sever­ity of their con­di­tion.

The ex­act lo­ca­tion of the raid has not been re­vealed.

North Wales Po­lice Ru­ral Crime Team tweeted: “Har­row­ing day for the team af­ter a joint op­er­a­tion with the RSPCA to­day at a small­hold­ing in Flintshire.

“Cats, dogs and horses un­for­tu­nately seized due to their con­di­tion. Sadly one horse and dog had to be eu­th­a­nized.

An RSPCA Cymru spokesman said: “This is an on-go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”
