Pet-owner in shock after sausage filled with rat poison is thrown to dog in back garden
This is a terrible story of an innocent dog just enjoying time in his own garden when someone tried to poison him by throwing sausage filled with rat poison into the back garden.
The owner commented:
“Three large chunks of chorizo sausage were thrown into our garden from the lane behind our house. The sausages were hollowed out and stuffed with rat poison.
“I just happened to be going to the back door to call Freddie in, when I saw him eating something. A piece of the sausage had landed on the patio table.
