From Checkpoint, 5:27 pm on 4 October 2023

Animal control is grappling with a surge in dog attacks in Auckland.

There have been almost 2500 attacks in the year to June, 250 more than the same time last year.

Over 2500 canines had to be put down over the same time, double the previous 12 months.

Animal shelters are also heaving, with more than 6000 dogs impounded.

Finn Blackwell has more.
