File # 2020-5721

On June 23 the Oceanside RCMP were called to a residential neighbourhood in Parksville in response to a possible dog poisoning incident.

Upon attendance to Roscow Street in Parksville, officers learned that a dog had become ill and that the owner of the dog discovered a hot dog in the yard that had some form of pill stuffed inside.

Officers were also aware of a separate incident on a street (Wisteria Street) nearby approximately 2 weeks prior in which a dog was taken to the Veterinarian after eating meat left in the dog’s yard. Due to the proximity of these incidents and similar facts, officers canvased the area in search of other dog owners. They found that at least 2 other dogs had been ill in recent weeks. The dogs have all thankfully recovered.

Officers have seized the hot dog wiener for a possible analysis and notified the BC SPCA about the incident.

Oceanside RCMP and the BC SPCA are working together to try and solve this case and are looking for help with identifying the suspect responsible for this. If you have any information in regards to this case please call the Oceanside RCMP at (250) 248-6111
