Dogs apparently poisoned in Hailey

Incidents occurred near Heagle Park

Express Staff Writer

    Following the apparent poisoning of three dogs near Heagle Park in Hailey, police are advising dog owners to keep their pets on a leash and to watch what they are eating.
    Scott Acker, a veterinarian at the Sun Valley Animal Center south of Ketchum, said three dogs were brought in Monday with severe muscle twitching, a symptom consistent with poisoning. He said all of the dogs were treated and had recovered.
Acker said the dogs’ owners said the animals had eaten meat—apparently chicken in the first two cases and pork in the third—that they found on the ground near the park. He said the first two dogs were brought in about 11 a.m. after having been walked earlier that morning, and the third dog arrived in the evening.
    Hailey Assistant Police Chief Dave Stellers said the incidents are under investigation.
    “We’re talking to people in the neighborhood,” he said.
    Stelllers asked that anyone who finds anything that might be connected with the incidents call the department.
