Dog owners are being urged to remain vigilant as a number of animals have been hospitalised after being poisoned at Parkhurst Forest on the outskirts of Newport.
Green, Roberts and Butler Veterinary Surgeons in Carisbrooke have issued a warning as they have a number of animals currently under their care that appear to have been poisoned.
It’s understood that bright blue poison, mixed with food such as baked beans, has been put out in the area of Marks Corner.
Common symptoms include anxiety, drooling, shaking, seizing, fever), respiratory distress and/or failure and sometimes death.
It was in November last year that Island Echo reported a similar instance of poisoning in the same location.
Hampshire Constabulary has been alerted to the situation.
Elsewhere in the same area, Island Echo readers have reported nails and screws being left under the wheels of their vehicles in an apparent attempt to sabotage them and cause damage.
