Police warn dog owners to watch out in the New Toronto area after reports of crushed pills were found.
“Police are still trying to determine whether or not the pills that were found could have contributed to the death of a complainant’s dog approximately one week ago,” Toronto Police said Monday in a news release.
The pills were seen Monday noon at the back yards of homes near the Sixth Street and Lake Shore Boulevard near Islington Avenue.
“Police are asking the public who live in the Sixth Street/Lake Shore Boulevard West area to check their properties, report any similar findings and use extra caution when using their yards.”
If anyone has an information, please contact the police at 416-808-2200, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, or text TOR and a message to CRIMES (274637).
There have been also reports of crushed fill found in the off-leash area of Allan Gardens park downtown but it has not yet been confirmed if the two incidents are related.
