A Conception Bay woman is concerned for the safety of her dogs after finding small sausages laden with hooks near her property.
Sheena Chaytor found Vienna sausages in which someone had placed short, sharp hooks.
She told CBC News it was not the first time someone has done something dangerous to meat that a dog could be expected to eat.
"My eldest dog ... again just walking on the edge of our property found a pork chop, which turned out later to have been dipped in slug bait," she said.
"That too had given her seizures."
Chaytor has filed a complaint with the RCMP about each incident, and is hoping that someone will be found responsible.
