A Regina woman is cautioning pet owners after she made a horrifying discovery in the yard where her dogs roam.
Emma Medeiros posted a video to Facebook Tuesday showing two pieces of a hot dog, each side stuffed with what she describes as several razor blades.
“I took my fur babies out for a pee this morning and happened to notice some hot dog in my yard, which is very unusual,” she wrote. “I went up to the pieces and it turns out there’s a bunch of razor blades in each piece.”
Medeiros then warned people living nearby in the area of 6th Avenue and Queen Street to check their yards.
Bill Thorn, with the Regina Humane Society, said the organization was alerted about the situation, and referred the matter to city police.
Thorn said there are several reasons why something like this could take place.
“We can’t jump to conclusions and if there is anything that can be investigated, it needs to be done properly, like any other investigation,” he said.
He said unless the homeowners knows, or has some idea, who put the razor-spiked food in the yard, it’s “almost impossible” to track down.
Thorn urged pet owners to be aware of what’s in their yard or out on the street, and to make sure their dogs don’t eat things they find on the ground.
