Two bull lurchers and a springer spaniel died after swallowing poison in Fryent Country Park in Brent.

Ben Williamson from PETA said: "It is imperative that any community faced with the abuse of animals take measures to find the culprit or culprits and stop the violence. Animal abusers are a danger to everyone."


Poison placed in London parks 'a criminal activity'

This is such a nasty, cruel act which has killed three beloved dogs and endangered all domestic pets and wild animals, in such close proximity to a country park.

Family pets, wildlife and the amenities of a country park are factors that enhance the quality of people's lives. The owners and families of the dogs affected have suffered acute distress.

This is not simple, ignorant mischief, but criminal activity and the persons found to be responsible will be prosecuted.

Three dogs killed in a 'cruel and inhumane' way

We are very concerned to hear these reports.

Poisoning is a cruel and inhumane way for an animal to die and one which would have caused these dogs a great deal of suffering.

The RSPCA has offered the police any support they need in dealing with these incidents and urges anyone with any information to come forward.

– Simon Osborne, Chief Inspector for the RSPCA

Poisoning kills three dogs, while three others survive

  • The first dog was poisoned on January 21 after eating blue tablets near a lay-by on Fryent Way, inside the park.
  • On Thursday, three dogs ate poisoned meat that was left on a grass verge in Salmon Street - one of the dogs died while two others survived
  • The following day two more dogs ate poisoned meat found in the undergrowth on the same street - one died and the other survived
