The New York City Parks Department and the NYPD are looking into a threat against dogs in Central Park that was posted on Craigslist recently, according to DNAinfo. The Craigslist post, which has since been removed, announced there are “too many dogs” in the city, saying that there are “too many p–ing and s–ing everywhere. Kill them!” The post also states, “I am leaving poison in bits of meat and gravy dog food, poison the dogs!! (sic).” While the Parks Department knows the threat could be a hoax, they are “taking it seriously.” No dogs have been reported poisoned since the threatening post appeared online, but dog owners are alarmed nonetheless. To keep your dogs safe, be sure to keep an eye on them in the park, preventing them from eating items they find on the ground, and call 311 or 911 to report anything suspicious.
