I wish to make pet owners aware that rat and mouse poisoning pellets have been found at and near Rembrandt Park in recent days. Dogs often consume things on the ground that look like food when you take them for a walk. Owners must watch them carefully. Then there are outdoor cats. They have nobody looking out for them.
One of my neighbours saw a torn package of green pellets on the ground and threw them in the garbage. He also found a wrapper on the ground clearly labelled as Wilsarin: Rat and Mouse Bait.
Public Security officers from Côte Saint-Luc are investigating and we have reported this to police.
Sadly, we have had previous cases of people who clearly hate animals of doing such a horrible thing. Please be mindful of this situation and let me know of any suspicious activity. This also can be occurring in other parts of Côte Saint-Luc.
A family member was walking her dog near Mackle Road and Marc Chagall last month. The pooch ingested something, fell very ill the next day and had to be rushed to the vet. He almost died. It cost her $5,000 to regain his health.
On Saturday, July 25, Public Security officers found six new packs of the poisoning. They have yellow taped the areal. A member of our Dog Owners Committee also found some fresh pellets in the grass. They are well into the ground and difficult for our Public Works cleanup team to even pick up. We are upping the urgency of this situation to the police as there is clearly someone out there who wants to harm animals. I repeat the importance of reporting to us any suspicious behavior. It is almost as if this person wants us to know what he or she is doing. Why else are they leaving their wrappers on the ground?
