(KCBS) – Recently, poisonous meatballs were discovered in several San Francisco neighborhoods. Obviously, it was a major problem and of concern for owners of dogs and cats.
“Yeah, this is really terrible,” said Jennifer Scarlett, DVM, co-president of the San Francisco SPCA. “Back in July, hundreds of meatballs laced with strychnine were found throughout San Francisco parks, places where dogs frequent the most. And law enforcement officials believe that they were deliberately placed to poison dogs.”
“And,” she continued, “it worked. Many dogs were poisoned and one dog was confirmed to die from strychnine poisoning.”
