Chester Countess park

Tarvinonline has been alerted by a concerned local resident about recent disturbing reports of sausages/meat laced with paracetamol being left in public places with the intention of hurting dogs.

The police have given out a warning around Whitby Park in Ellesmere Port, and there have been a number of incidents in Chester, particularly on the canal path between Blacon and Chester, and dog walking routes near the Hospital and Countess Way have been targeted, resulting in two dogs being killed.

RSPCA regional press officer Rachel Butler has said "We are very concerned to hear that someone may be deliberately trying to harm dogs by leaving paracetamol in sausages on the floor along well-known dog-walking routes in Chester." She urged anyone who has any information about the incidents to call the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999. People found responsible for poisoning animals can face up to six months in prison or a £20,000 fine.

The concerned Tarvin resident said "I don't want to scare local dog owners but fore armed is forewarned"
