Dog nappers at work across Herefordshire

According to the Herefordshire Association of Local Councils, dog nappers are working in pairs across Herefordshire to identify properties from which their colleagues will attempt to steal beloved pets.  If you own a dog or know someone who does, watch out for new black cables tied to the fence of a dog-owner’s property or spray markings on the road outside such a property.
