Police and council in new raid on Pembroke Dock ‘farm of horrors’

A WARRANT under the Animal Welfare Act has been executed at a property in Pembroke Dock today (Feb 7).

A large police presence could be seen at Bramble Hall Farm, throughout the day while officers and Pembrokeshire County Council carried out the warrant.

A number of animals have been seized including dogs, birds and a tortoise.

A man, understood to be Sean Burns, has been arrested and remains in custody, on suspicion of breaching a court order which disqualified them from keeping animals.

Burns was sentenced in 2020 for various animal welfare offences and was given a substantial fine.

Sources have told this newspaper that the authorities were alerted to the property after a number of dogs were seen running into the road and they appeared to be in poor health.

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokesperson said: “At 8.45am this morning, Monday, 7th February, 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.”

Pembrokeshire County Council have confirmed they were also in attendance whilst the warrant was executed.

Aspokesman 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.”
