Poisoned Meatballs Found Again in San Francisco's Twin Peaks
NBC Bay Area ^ | Saturday, Feb 22, 2014

Posted on 02/23/2014 10:48:00 AM PST by nickcarraway

A warning for dog owners--poisoned meatballs have been found in the Twin Peaks neighborhood again.

San Francisco Animal Control officers spent hours Saturday morning looking for them. They found 21 meatballs that are similar to the ones found last summer.

Most of them were found near Crestline Drive and Parkridge Drive.

Officer have posted dozens of signs to alert pet owners. So far, they have not heard of any pets sickened or killed by the meatballs.

But at least one dog died last July after eating poisonous meatballs. Those meatballs left to poison dogs then were potentially lethal to humans.

If they catch this jerk off feed him a few of these with a glass of Antifreeze to wash them down.

Social interaction the San Francisco way.

If you truly care for anything, keep it out of San Francisco.

Could it be a muzzie? They don’t like dogs.

I would favor a rectal feeding as well.

We don’t know all the facts. There may be loose dogs running over the place and the authorities won’t do anything about it. Or it might be some rotten person. We just don’t know.

If there were loose dogs the answer is that the SPCA or animal control service will pick them up and try to find good homes for them.

Oh yeah loose dogs, well of course that would give some sub human the right to put out poisoned meat. Thanks for clarifying that.

Is that an excuse for leaving poisoned foot around?

It would be a shame if a rat got one of those baits.

Times have changed. When I was little we had a dog named Pete. He was never tied or fenced. When my oldest brother went to kindergarten Pete would follow. They’d call and mom would go get him. She’d keep him inside for a couple of hours and then a beeline to school. Pete got a diploma from Mrs Knapp that year. She said he had one of the best attendance records of her class. People didn’t used to, freak out when a dog was roamroaming as long as he wasn’t causing problems.

Maybe someone wants to rid the neighborhood of vagrants.

Last sentence: the poisoned dogs were then a lethal danger to humans? They eat dog in California?

They’re just shaping our culture to suit theirs like they do every country they invade.

I have my doubts. I tried to turn over a stray to the SPCA and was refused, and to give it to the pound, where it would be killed.

depends what spca or pound you are dealing with. can vary from one to the next in same region ...

many pounds claim a No Kill policy (but they sometimes have exceptions they don’t advertise, so check them out!)

here is a site with a big list of supposedly-No Kill agencies (public and private).. just pick your state...

http://www.nokillnetwork.org

good luck!

Were they intended for coyotes or cougars?

No,not in larger cites. The SPCA will not pick up dogs and charges a hefty fee if you bring a dog in. As to the Animal Control, they don’t. You are on your own.

Do you have a citation/link for that? I am not aware of that policy.

ok. we see spca pick up vans ... so the implication is that’s what they’re doing...

but i really don’t know for sure.

it sounds like you’ve already checked at least for your city
so that is the answer

there are often private operations that care for animals and then adopt them out. we got two lovely cats from such a lady....you may wish to look for someone like her

best, regards,
