The video was captioned: “Can I just come on here to say the dog had apparently bit a security guard. The security guard was fine.

“A man was arrested today for his XL Bully ‘attacking’ a security guard. With his child next to him sobbing his heart out, because these police officers were taking his family dog away.

“The dog got noosed away from his owners. With eight police officers there for a ‘violent dog’. The dog was so calm, as you can see in the video, police pointing tasers at the poor dog.”

It has acquired over 45,900 likes and greater than 4,490 feedback.

In the clip, a lady berates an officer for taking away the canine, pointing to a baby standing subsequent to the canine’s proprietor, asking him: “If that was your child, what would you do?’

The owner pleads with the police to let the dog go, whilst the dog tries to shake the noose from its neck.

Officers also arrested a man for allowing the animal to be out of control in a public place.

In the video, a person can be heard shouting: “So, you’re arresting him as well? Disgusting, the lot of you.”

The canine’s proprietor has since been launched on bail pending additional enquiries.

Leicestershire Police mentioned: “It has come to our attention that a number of videos and posts have been published on social media in relation to an incident in the city centre [on Saturday] where a man was detained and an XL Bully dog was seized.

“Prior to this incident officers were called to the Highcross Shopping Centre around 12.30pm after a security guard was bitten by a dog when the owner was refused entry into a shop.

“The owner subsequently left the scene and was detained in Silver Street with his dog.

“He was arrested on suspicion of allowing a dog to be dangerously out of control in a public place and causing injury. He has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.

“The XL Bully was seized by officers and taken to a place of safety. The security guard sustained an injury to his arm and leg and was discharged from hospital after treatment.

“His injuries are not believed to be serious. Enquiries are ongoing into the circumstances surrounding the incident.”

It comes as laws was introduced in by then Environment Secretary Therese Coffey, making it unlawful to promote, breed or abandon an XL Bully canine from December 31.

Campaigners from Don’t Ban Me – Licence Me have raised more than £86,000 in their bid to raise money for funding a judicial review.
