Toronto police are investigating after officers received reports of posters warning treats were placed in the grass of an east-end property that will make dogs “real sick.”

“To the person that lets their large dog use this area for a bathroom and will not pick up after the dog,” a picture of one of the posters read.

“Please be warned we have dropped small treats in the grass that will make your dog REAL SICK. It will not kill the dog but it will make the dog REAL SICK. If you [sic] dog starts to vomit, the dog should go to the VET. It won’t die but it will get REAL SICK.”

“Thank you, you are warned,” read the poster.
