A family in Suffield, Connecticut, is on edge after someone left poison-laced hot dog buns in their yard. As reported by WTNH News, the Pasquariello family discovered the buns, slathered with peanut butter and sprinkled with rat poison, in their front yard on Monday.
The family’s dog, a Great Pyrenees named Evelyn, had to be examined by a veterinarian after picking the laced buns up and carrying them in her mouth. Prior to the disturbing find, the family had received two letters from an anonymous source. One of the letters stated that the family’s dog was “frightening” their children, and it advised the family to “calm” the dog down.
The Pasquariello family claims their dog is secure in the yard, and that she would never hurt anyone. The rat poison incident has been reported to the authorities, and the local animal control agency is hopeful that someone’s home security cameras captured the culprit. ACO Ryan Selig said:
“If anyone is within the area, which would be Mountain Road, Plantation Drive, Sheldon Street, if you could comb over your home security systems from about midnight on the 9th until 8 a.m. on the 9th and see if there’s information that could help us with our case.”
