Police hunt for leads on 'killer' dogs
CONCERNS have been raised in Neath following claims that cats are being killed by dogs.
It is believed that around four cats have died in this way.
Neath South councillor Peter Rees said he was shocked to hear the claims raised by a number of residents who attended the Neath South Pact meeting.
"As the local member I find it very upsetting that this is happening and I would urge anyone with information of who the owners and dogs are, to contact either myself or preferably the police," he said.
He said one of the residents alleged that two of her cats were killed and there were claims that residents had seen terriers with four youths making these attacks.
A South Wales Police spokesman said: "We are aware there are concerns about problems with dogs allegedly attacking cats in the area.
"Anybody who has any information can come forward and it will be made a Pact priority."
An RSPCA spokesman said: "If anyone has information regarding these allegations we would urge them to call the RSPCA on 03001234999 as soon as possible so that we may investigate them thoroughly."
