A Sydney woman has been left ‘shocked’ after her dog was given a ‘poisoned’ bone for barking too much.
Cheri Blair, 66, spotted the bone in her backyard on Monday morning and later discovered an envelope containing a note.
“Your dog is to be poisoned, to [sic] much barking, sorry but no choice, your falt [sic],” the letter read.
Suggesting that the accompanying 20cm bone had been poisoned, the seven-month-old pup Jolene was rushed to an emergency vet in Artarmon, who induced vomiting.
7NEWS reports that the emergency treatment for her Portuguese Podengo cost $500, and that the dog has now recovered from the ordeal, with local police saying in a statement that the mutt is “fine and well”.
