An Elko woman is mourning the loss of her dog who she believes was intentionally poisoned.

Karey Pion's dog Oscar had to be put down because of severe internal chemical burns after he bit into a package of Drano that had been wrapped in a steak that someone put on the family's driveway.

Oscar was poisoned about a month ago and Pion had to put him down over the Family Day long weekend.
