Still more poison meatballs aimed at dogs have been found. This latest round is again in Colorado, and instead of being scattered randomly in public places, these look like they might have been placed to kill a specific dog.
Gail and Doedo Schipper found three meatballs laced with D-Con, a brand of rodent poison, in the front yard of their Longmont, Colorado, home over the weekend. Longmont is a suburb about 15 miles to the northeast of Boulder; just two months ago, eight meatballs containing rat poison were found in a park in Gunbarrel, which lies between Boulder and Longmont.
Police are looking into whether the meatballs found this weekend are linked to an anonymous letter the Schippers got in June 2013 threatening their dog for making too much noise. “If you don’t shut your f***ing dog up, I’ll blow its f***ing head off,” the letter said.
