A dog killer is on the loose in Seattle packing meat with rat poison. Unsuspecting animals are eating this meat falling victim to the rat poison.
On Sunday, Dec. 15, KOMO 4 News reported that a dog named Berdy, who visited Carkeek Park in Seattle, Wash. is recovering after ingesting poisoned meat on the morning of Saturday, Dec. 14.
The meat is suspected to be tainted with rat poison, and a sample has been sent to a Washington State University lab for testing.
Berdy’s owners believe the poisoned meat had been strewn along the south trail system of the park. It isn’t clear when the meat was thrown, but the group was out walking between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.
Vomiting was induced at the clinic, and after emergency care by vets, the owners comment Berdy is doing well so far, and was enjoying snuggle time on the couch Saturday night.
Several Redditors offered advice for those dog owners whose dogs may have been poisoned by such attacks.
