WATERFORD City and County Council have warned the public about man, claiming to be one of their dog wardens, following an attempt to take dogs in the Ballybricken area of the city.
In a statement the Council said, “We have received reports of a man in a 09 KK van, claiming to be one of our Dog Wardens, attempting to ‘take’ dogs from members of the public. The man was challenged and did not produce ID.
“Please be aware that our wardens do not seize dogs on the spot, and will always produce ID when asked – furthermore our vans all have Waterford Council branding.
“If you come across this individual, please contact An Garda Síochána.”
