Melbourne Dog Owners Warned As 'Poisonous Bait' Found
A Mornington Peninsula dog owner has been left furious after his dog fell victim to poison baits.
Police are appealing for witnesses after pellets of pastry laced with rat poison were found in Hastings several times last week.
Jose Zandveld told the Herald Sun he rushed his 13-year-old border collie Anzac to the vet after the ate some of the 30 pellets at the corner of Lewis St and Tara Drive on Wednesday.
The vet then induced vomiting.
Another set of baits were found, on Tara Drive between Isis Place and Lewis St and were reported to police yesterday morning.
Victoria Police spokeswoman Belinda Batty said pet owners in the area were being asked to be vigilant and report unusual behaviour or suspicious substances.
