A dog has been seized by the police after a cat was mauled to death in Hatfield.
Following a police investigation, a dog was seized from Walker Grove on Friday, July 20.
The animal was seized in connection with an incident in which a cat was killed on June 23.
A man in his thirties from Walker Grove has been reported for Section 1 of the Dangerous Dogs Act (possession of a prohibited breed) and Section 4 of the Animal Welfare Act (causing unnecessary suffering to an animal).
A police spokeswoman said: “The Pitbull is now in kennels and the owner must pay the daily kennel rate until this is heard by a court.
“The court will then decide if the dog will be put down or released back to the owner with conditions such as to keep it muzzled in public.”
