Saint Paul police on poisoned bread alert

Saint Paul police warned citizens of someone attempting to harm neighborhood dogs with pieces of poisoned bread.

Mara Gottfried of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press:

Over the summer, eight dogs in a four-block radius fell ill after apparently eating biscuits laced with rat poison pellets that had been left in their yards. Three later died — though at least one appeared to perish, in part, from unrelated health issues.

Last Thursday, a man found ripped-up pieces of bread next to his dog’s bowl in his yard in the 1200 block of Minnehaha Avenue, in the same area as the cases over the summer. His dog had not eaten it, but he noted his next-door neighbor told him bread had also appeared next to her dog’s bowl.

On Friday, the police department’s Western District posted on Facebook, saying people should call police if they find bread in their yards with what is believed to be poison on them meant for their dogs.
