Under the Companion Animals Act any person, including a council officer, may seize a stray dog if the dog has attacked a person or animal and the dog is on property owned or occupied by the person seizing the dog (section 18).

In addition, council officers and police have powers to seize a dog which has attacked from the owner's property if the owner is not present and the dog cannot be adequately secured on the property (section 18).
