The City of Richmond is warning pet owners about poisoned meat and needles found at local trails and off-leash dog parks in Richmond.

The Steveston Veterinary Hospital posted this warning on Instagram:

“WE ADVISE KEEPING YOUR PETS ON LEASH UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE” reads the Instagram post.

Earlier this month, meat filled with needles was found on a popular dog walking trail in Burnaby. The pet owner, Jeff Curr, took a closer look at the raw beef and realized that at least twelve sewing needles were sticking out of the meat.

If you see anything suspicious, you are advised to contact the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212. Furthermore, if you believe your dog may have ingested something, please take them to the Vancouver Animal Emergency and Referral Centre immediately.
