Edgefield Woman Reports Possible Poisoning of Dogs

web posted December 27, 2013

EDGEFIELD A Horn Creek Court woman called the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office after arriving at her home Christmas Eve and finding her dogs barking at the property line. Upon further inspection the woman found hamburger meat with "a green pellet substance" mixed in the meat inside the pen holding her female dog. There was no meat found in the two male dogs pen, thinking that they had already consumed the tainted meat.

The deputy photographed the meat and took it in as evidence. The woman reported that she was taking her dogs to a veterinarian for treatment of possible poisoning. The green pellets were not identified in the incident report; however, most rat poisons use green pellets, according to various supplier's websites.

The dogs, a female Red-nosed pit bull, a male Labrador, and a male offspring of the two were treated and released by an emergency veterinarian clinic later in the evening. The owner told Edgefield Daily that all three dogs were doing well and did not require additional treatment at this time. 

According to the woman, a neighbor had left a note on her door a few months ago telling her to keep her dogs "quiet", the report stated. When she arrived the same neighbor was riding an ATV along the property line just before the discovery of the tainted meat in the pen.

The case is currently under investigation.
