“We are concerned for the safety of dogs that frequent the park,” said Const. Mansoor Sahak.

“It is too early to tell if these incidents are as a result of a deliberate attempt at poisoning dogs, or if the dogs were poisoned after ingesting a toxic plant or mushroom.

“At this time, we have no evidence that this was an intentional act, but we are investigating all possibilities.”
