it is incredibly. It not only effects the dogs but also can effect children.

That is horrid. I sure hope they catch this individual and lock him/her up. Sounds like someone is tired of having to pick up after dogs. Desperate individual who sounds like a bomb waiting to explode.

I would hazard a guess that the local new is or has alerted people to this threat. At least if the public knows there is far less chance of dogs being harmed. I think about the many that have no home or owner to whisk them off for vet care. Dogs, cats and other creatures out there are in grave danger.

How awful. I had a friend whose dog was killed by poison meat left of the ground (on purpose), This is a crime and I hope they find the terrible people who are murdering animals.

This is so wrong. If they found out who it is,please feed them some of their meatballs.

People think that because other people don't see them that they can getaway with anything, but, God the Almighty sees all!

To the residents of SF: Please make a conscience effort to be on the lookout for these , or any dog who looks like it might have eaten one.

Pay attention anywhere you take your pets to or even in your own backyard. You never know when a neighbor who has secretly hated your dog when it barks, will toss over the fence a poison meatball.
