ANIMAL welfare officers are investigating reports that sandwiches laced with rat poison were left around a popular dog-walking spot in Wirral.
The RSPCA officers were made aware of the attack over the weekend and have warned pet owners to be vigilant.
The toxic sandwiches were said to have been left at Royden Park, in Frankby – a picturesque park enjoyed by many residents.
Today Wirral RSPCA Insp Anthony Joynes said it was a “disgusting” crime and asked anyone who had any information to come forward.
Unconfirmed reports suggested one dog may have died as a result of eating the poisoned sandwiches and another was left needing veterinary treatment.
