POSSIBLE DOG POISONINGS WITH ANTIFREEZE: OPP

March 4, 2021   ·   0 Comments

The Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has received three reports of possible dog poisoning using antifreeze so far this month.

They all occurred in the Bolton community, more specifically in the neighbourhoods surrounding James Bolton Public School. In one report, it was a piece of bread soaked in antifreeze.

“Caledon OPP would like to emphasize the importance of remaining vigilant to what your pets are consuming when outdoors,” say Police. “Adhering to the Caledon By-Law requiring your dog to be on a leash will also provide you with some additional control.

“Please remember that it is important to immediately report any suspicious activity to police, specifically around parks and other public areas in these circumstances. Information such as a description of the person and their vehicle (especially the plate number if observed) are all useful details to a police investigation.”

You can also provide information anonymously by contacting Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.peelcrimestroppers.ca. When you contact Crime Stoppers, you stay anonymous, you never have to testify, and you could receive a cash reward of up to $2,000 upon an arrest.
