Poison Meatballs
Three dogs dead in Spokane

Last week, Lee Harrington blogged about a post on Craigslist that contained a threat to plant poison in New York City dog runs. It may have been a hoax but, since you can never be sure, NYCdogs sent out an alert. This week in Spokane, Wash., poison meatballs on the ground have caused the death of at least three dogs. In at least one case, the meatballs were discovered and ingested on private property.

I don’t monitor my dogs’ every move when they are in the backyard. Until today, I figured I knew what was back there. I’m guessing (hoping) this an isolated aberration, some sort of personal neighborhood grudge, and that no more dogs will be hurt.
