Police urge dog owners to be vigilant after poisoning

Police have advised dog walkers to remain extra vigilant after five dogs were poisoned in a north London park last month.

Sergeant Peter Rowntree from Brent Police said:

I am grateful to everyone who has assisted to raise awareness regarding these incidents and I would encourage all dog walkers and the users of any of our parks, to be vigilant and phone through any suspicious activity.

With better weather and longer hours of daylight the parks will be busier and I am hopeful that any criminal activity is more likely to be seen and phoned through to us.

Two of the dogs died, while three others required medical treatment.

The meat was found to contain Methomyl - a carbonate insecticide which has been banned due its level of toxicity.

Dog owners have been urged to remain extra vigilant and members of the public have been advised to wear gloves if handling any substances.
