Worried about dog parks?
Sep 30, 2013 / 5:00 pm
Temporary signs have been posted at local dog parks alerting pet owners to reports of chemically laced bread being left on the ground.
Reports of contaminated buns or doughnuts and an odour of anti-freeze are unconfirmed by the City of Kelowna and Kelowna RCMP.
“The signs are going up just to make sure dog owners monitor their pets at all times,” said Parks Services Manager Ian Wilson. “We have investigated the reports, but couldn’t confirm there was any contaminated bread left in the Glenmore or Rutland dog parks.”
Wilson says the RCMP have been made aware of the allegation and he urges pet owners to keep a lookout and to immediately report anything suspicious.
Kelowna Parks staff have followed up with a local veterinarian about a dog that was reportedly poisoned last weekend and the veterinarian indicated that testing showed no evidence of poison.
