A resident contacted us about their pet’s painful death from poisoning. The vet thought the animal may have consumed some poison embedded in a bait, possibly targeting vermin.
Most people take care to use poisons properly. However, a small mistake may bring death or injury to a wider and undifferentiated group of animals found in a rural community: cats, dogs, hedgehogs, birds, ducks, deer, etc. The hurt extends to the owner and their family, and can carry a significant cost when trying to save the animal.
