Animal rights charity, PETA, is offering a £1,000 reward in the hunt for those who poisoned, and killed, three dogs in a north London park.
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."
Lesley Hastings was walking her dogs at Fryent Country Park Way on Thursday evening. Two of them ate what she thought was mouldy bread. But it turned out to be poison. While she was at the vet with one dog, the other died at home.
- 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
Three dogs have been killed after being poisoned at a park in north London. Two bull lurchers and a springer spaniel died after swallowing poison in Fryent Country Park in Brent.
The RSPCA says the animals would have experienced "a great deal of suffering" before they died.
