A man was arrested on Monday (February 7) morning on suspicion of breaching a court order which disqualified him from keeping animals.

There was a large police presence at Bramble Hall Farm in Pembroke Dock, when a warrant under the Animal Welfare Act was executed at the property.

A man was arrested on suspicion of breaching a previously-imposed court order.

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokesperson said: “At 8.45 am this morning, Monday, February 7, Dyfed-Powys Police officers and Pembrokeshire County Council officers executed a warrant at Bramble Hall Farm under the Animal Welfare Act.

“One male has been arrested on suspicion of breaching a court order which disqualified him from keeping animals. The male is currently in police custody.

“During the warrant a number of dogs and other animals were seized and taken from the property.”

A spokesperson for Pembrokeshire County Council (who were also in attendance) said: “This morning (Monday, February 7th) Pembrokeshire County Council officers, alongside Dyfed-Powys Police officers, attended Bramble Hall Farm, near Pembroke Dock.

“This followed reports of animals being kept on site, contrary to an indefinite disqualification order on the keeping of animals issued by a District Judge at Swansea Magistrates Court in February, 2020.

“The Council can confirm that 12 dogs, two birds and a tortoise have today been removed from the premises. Enquiries are ongoing at this time.”
