Hello everyone, a number of our readers have contacted Tarvinonline to report the following incident in Tarporley:

There was an attempted dog snatch in Tarporley, Wednesday 5th August.
Two men in a white van tried to snatch two dogs from a lady in the busy main High street, in daylight! They had a couple of attempts but not sure if it was the same lady they targeted.
Everyone needs to be vigilant and perhaps also, consider if it is wise to leave pets tied up outside shops ( no criticism intended but they are inevitably at increased risk).
Be vigilant everyone.

Ed:"Many thanks to our followers for highlighting this incident, let's hope the culprits are soon apprehended!"

Note: The photo of a dog we have used for this article is a "generic picture" from the web and is not knowlingly representative of the dogs referred to in our article.

Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
