Customer Question

Can a police officer physically take a dog from someone's arms? The officer was in my driveway and took the dogs off to the shelter. Now I can't afford 1125 dollars to get them back

i am sorry to hear this. If they did this without basis, then that is illegal seizure of property but I would presume they had a court order or there was some decision that these dogs posed a threat.
