Dog poisoning in Evatt

By johnboy - 31 July 2009 45

The RSPCA is has put out a media release warning that dog poisoners are on the loose in Evatt.

    We have heard about the tragedy one family has suffered and are seeking information to assist with our investigations.

    A resident in Sheehy Street has lost one family dog and has had two others admitted to a local vet clinic, one is still critical. We believe these dogs have been deliberately poisoned using common rat poison.

    A four month old St Bernard was found dead on Saturday morning. On Tuesday morning a second dog started bleeding from the nose and yesterday a third dog was admitted to the vet hospital.

    “This is a disgusting and cowardly act of cruelty” Michael said. “I like to think we live in a society where we get on with our neighbours , but sadly for the residents of Sheehy Street in Evatt this is not the case. We are aware families in this street own a number of dogs and we are asking people to be vigilant.

While sadly not a new thing, we can only hope they catch the buggers this time.

What’s Your opinion?

I really worry about my cat, not that he can get out, but he’s really old and slow and anyone could get him if he did get out.

Guys – need media attention on this to get it anywhere. These people WILL do it again. Its been going on for a few years in Evatt as per Hells_Bells.
Any ideas?
Scum of the earth they are!

Ouch that’s close to home, I’ll have a word to my dogs!

I had two dogs I had had for at least a decade each in this house poisoned, died within 7 days of each other and the cat that hung in the backyard died a week later in the backyard, where is the cat who didn’t get along with the dogs was perfectly fine, about 5 years ago this was. Pricks!

Speaking of act of animal cruelty, my family had 14 chickens killed in their Northside backyard last weekend. Many of them had the necks broken and a few had the necks ripped off.

That’s just horrible. People are seriously f*cked in the head.

If they even think of hurting my dog, I’ll send them deep into the Snowy Mountains & tie them to a tree & let the wild dogs eat them to death.

My dog is a Samoyed & reportedly there are quite a few wild Samoyed’s in the Snowy Mountains.

But I would most likely put it down to some neighbourhood dispute or smart arse so & so’s

What the hell is this world coming to when someone (could be more than one) can do that.

Nah, don’t hit them, just return the favour they did for the dogs, make them eat the poison………….

+1. Or you can hit them AND poison them!

Not one to normally condone violence but if you find or hear of someone doing this, beat the living sh*t out of them…

Thumper 10:59 am 31 Jul 09

*sigh*

Shoot the bastards in the knee caps…

While this sort of news is horrible to hear, has it been confirmed that the dogs were actually poisoned, and not simply that they ate the poison of their own being? Any dog owner will tell you, if a dog sees something on the ground itll have a sniff and maybe a taste, not caring/knowing if its poison.

motleychick 10:33 am 31 Jul 09

These people are just disgusting. This sort of stuff makes so angry. What do they get out of it? I just don’t get it.

Well isn’t that just the icing on a cake of depressing stories this morning.
