Ludo, the eight-year-old Sheltie-Cavalier. Ms Natasha Wilkins was walking it along Lorong Lew Lian when it ate a piece of bread on the ground and within 15 minutes, it was shaking, retching and foaming at the mouth.
Bread spiked with a tranquilliser and intended for a pigeon culling exercise may have killed an eight-year-old Sheltie-Cavalier dog on Nov 16.
Marine Parade Town Council (MPTC) said it is investigating the incident, which bears some similarities to a 2013 case. In that instance, a dog died after eating spiked bread left out for pigeons by a pest control company.
The Straits Times learnt that both incidents involved the same company – Clean Solutions – which is engaged by three town councils here, including MPTC. The dog owner, Ms Natasha Wilkins, 49, said the incident happened while she was walking her dog Ludo along Lorong Lew Lian at about 6.30am.
Before she could stop her dog, it ate a piece of bread and within 15 minutes, started shaking, retching and foaming at the mouth.
Ludo was a lovely doggy customer of Animal Arts Academy, our deepest sympathy to Ludo’s family, his kind and friendly soul will be kept in out hearts and mind. May he be happier over the rainbow bridge! ❤️
