Eighteen Alsatian bomb-sniffers were poisoned with an anti-tic treatment which is meant to go on the animals backs. " A source told The Sun that the dogs died in horrific circumstances" after the lethal toxin was put in their food at the Army kennels in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.
Fifteen of the canines made a full recovery but three died. The RSPCA called for an urgent investigation.

they shouldn’t be allowed near the dogs!
What idiots!!!court marshall!
Maybe it was intentional. Muslims, I have heard, don’t like dogs.
Were the individuals Asian (Muzzis)?
Read the label!
There does seem to be quite a bit of them in Merry Ol England these days.
I won’t even put that toxic crap on my dogs’ *backs*.
I know too many people with ‘spot on’ horror stories.
The stuff is death in a tube.
I see this all the time. It has to do with ignorance and the carelessness to not read the label of the product and how it is to properly be administered. All of the flea and tick products in the US if administered improperly by mouth will cause problems but rarely death. There may be some intentional malice in this instance.
My own mother killed a wonderful little,well-behaved dog,”Cap’n Stubby”,by putting in his food the same dosage of worm medicine prescribed for our other dogs of five or six times his weight.He died of convulsions.And she was blaming it on snakes must have bit him,etc. until asked the right questions. Still doesn’t really admit /believe she killed him.
There are millions of people who totally ignore the actual directions and instructions of use for products ,but instead just go with how they “think” it should work.These are the people who tell themselves”if one teaspoonful is good,three will be better” ,and give cause to those who call for ever more regulation.
Are they this stupid?
Poor GERMAN SHEPHERDS (still can’t get past that errant name, huh?).
Why are German Shepherds sometimes referred to as Alsatians?
English didn’t like anything German in the wars so they changed the name to “Alsatian”, referring to Alsace-Lorraine region. This is the region often changing hands between French and German over the ages, of Bavaria.
