Dogs poisoned near Silt

SILT — Local police on Tuesday reported that two dogs have been poisoned in the Silt area recently, possibly by automobile antifreeze, and warned dog owners to keep their pets on a leash or inside a house or other structure.

Police Chief Levy Burris said there have been no reports of dog poisoning other than the two mentioned in a press release, and did not identify the dogs by breed or other characteristics in the release.

Burris reported that one of the two dogs had died as a result of drinking antifreeze, which is known to attract dogs with its smell and sweet taste.

The chief said in an email that he was not sure if the other dog had died.
