Pulse24 is reporting that a pair of east end dogs have succumbed to poison. Torontoist wonders whether this is an isolated incident or a continuation of the poisoned hot dog epidemic from a couple of years ago. It seems a little unlikely considering the owner points out that his backyard is completely fenced off but it doesn’t mean that the dogs couldn’t have eaten something on a walk.
In early 2004 an unknown person seeded Withrow Park with poisoned pieces of hot dog. 15 animals became ill and the park had to be closed down.
