Poisoner sought after series of dog deaths in Blackburn

A POISONER is being sought after four dogs died following walks along a canal towpath.

Officers said the animals, including a Jack Russell and a chocolate labrador, died over a four day period after being exercised along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in Blackburn.

One line of inquiry is that food laced with poison had been placed on the towpath in retaliation to a growing problem with dog faeces being left by pet owners, police said.

The investigation is also looking into the posibility the poison could have been illegally placed along the one-mile stretch of the canal between Beechwood Bridge and the old disused railway bridge at Feniscowles because of a rodent problem.

Carol McNaboe, 64, of Livesey Branch Road, Blackburn believes her normally fit and healthy 13-year-old Jack Russell dog Trudy was killed by the poison.

The grandmother-of-two said: “My husband Pete takes the dogs out for a three-hour walk daily.

“Last week he decided to walk along the towpath so he could nip to the shop. When he came back Trudy kept being sick.

“We just thought she had eaten something she shouldn’t have and were planning to take her to the vet the next day.

“When we came down in the morning she was dead. It’s really heartbreaking as we have had Trudy since she was just five weeks old. She was a big part of our family.

“Whoever has done this needs to be caught.”

Representatives from Lancashire police, the Canals and Rivers Trust and the RSPCA are now looking into the issue.

Dog walker, Robert Allen, 50, of Langdale Road, Blackburn, said: “The dog walking fraternity in Feniscowles is currently terrified of walking down the canal towpath.

“Something needs to be done to make the area safe again.

“I think someone has done this because of the growing problems with dog muck in the area and that isn’t right.”

Householders in the Langdale Road area recently received a letter from Blackburn with Darwen Council urging dog owners to clean up after their pets.

Resident and dog owner Peter Clarkson said: “It’s awful news that dogs have been poisoned in the area.

“I am purposely keeping away from the canal towpath now just on the off chance there is poison still there. Since I have found out I’ve been watching my dog Elmo like a hawk because he has seemed a little under the weather, but I think he is fine now.

“I had noticed there had been a growing problem with dog mess in the area but for someone to do this in retaliation is just irresponsible.”

Teacher Maxine Smith, of Old Gates, Blackburn, said: “I heard there had been some issues with poison on the canal towpath so I have been steering clear.

“My puppy is in to everything so if there is poison in food or among food he is likely to eat it.

“I just hope the police find out who is behind it soon.”

Officers investigating the issue are now appealing to anyone with information to come forward. The last death reported to the police was on Sunday.

PC Russ Lambert said: “So far four dog deaths are being treated as suspicious and unexplained.

“We are looking into the possibility someone has deliberately poisoned them over concerns of excessive dog mess in the Feniscowles area.

“So far we are yet to speak to all the people involved but it would seem each of the dogs that have died have been walked along the canal towpath within a four day period.

“I have contacted the Canals and Rivers Trust and I will be making contact with a number of local vets to see if we can establish a cause of death.”

An RSPCA spokesman said: “It is every responsible owner’s nightmare for their pet to be poisoned.

“Poisoning can lead to horrible, slow and lingering deaths and cause much suffering to the animals.

“It is an issue the RSPCA takes very seriously and we urge anyone who suspects their animal may have been poisoned to take him or her to the vet so they can both check for evidence and ensure the animal is ok.”

A spokesman from the Canals and Rivers Trust said it would also be working with the police where necessary.

Some sick people around but what does it take to get dog owners to clean up the mess. I know this is not the way to go about it but some owners will never learn. Just a handful of bad owners are the cause of this.

I wish the people motivated to kill these dogs would man up and pull the owners up instead.

It isn't the fault of the dogs and it's possible to end up harming the dog of an owner who *does* pick up after their pet.

The sad thing about this case is that I bet its the dogs of owners who do clean up after them are the ones that died. Not a good way to go about dealing with the issue at all.

Even worse, considering the jobs and positions some of them hold in society. Allowing them access to information under the data protection act and the criminal use thereof.

if this sicko killer is so concerned why not stand on the canal towpath with a camera and photograph the offending OWNERS?

it's not the dogs fault but it's them that this 'person' is torturing and killing.

As for the offending dog owners it only costs a quid for a 100 or so nappy sacks to clean up , if thats too much to spend to be responsible then should you really have a dog?

Whilst not condoning any action leading to the death of even one dog aren't the irresponsible dog owners "administering poison" by allowing their dogs to foul the towpath and pavements? Dog faeces are responsible for a disease causing blindness and other nasty ailments. There has to be a change in the attitude of some dog owners. What if it was their child affected by these faeces.

I dont condone these actions either but many people are sick of ignorant and selfish dog owners who pretend they cant see their dog sh*ttng all over the place or carry bags with no intention of using them or use them and throw the bags anywhere after.
Also of aggressive dog owners of aggressive dogs who just wish to intimidate or worse.
The law does not protect adequately, people just dont care.
if any good comes from this it may make owners take more care in future.

We walk our whippet dog from the bridge at Feniscowles all the way to the old sun paper mill and then up through the cricket club area. There are no dog waste bins at all on that whole stretch but we still act as responsible dog owners and pick up and bag the waste and then have to carry it with us for the whole walk! Please get more dog bins along the canal walk. I'm positive people would use them. It is one of our favourite walks but we are worried about this.

If the people who do this think the towpath is bad, they should come and look at the area of Darwen where I live. Every morning, there are several huge mounds, and, I mean mounds, of the stuff on the pavements. Perhaps the answer might be to poison the owners instead.

Some faith believers believe that bleeding animals to death while they’re still alive is necessary. So let’s hope that if there is someone laying poison they soon gain enough common sense to realise that it’s just a cruel thing to do. For whatever reason!

Hi John,

You fail to see presumably because you don't have a dog. I walk my dog exclusively on a lead, and a sniff of the ground very quickly can turn into your dog eating something - more often than not takeaway food thrown onto the ground by careless people who have little regard for their environment. I try and remove whatever she's eaten, but sometimes that can be quite tricky. I probably have more reason than most to hate dog muck as I spend hours each day walking my dog through areas where there are piles just left, waiting to be stood on. I always carry bags, always keep an eye on my dog, and always pick up. However, using this as an excuse to poison dogs is inexcusable - people should report dog fouling to the relevant authorities, not take the law into their own hands This person is a heartless sinister vigilante and whose actions shouldn't be applauded.

Likewise some faith believers will regard those who oppose bleeding an animal prior to consuming its meat as ludicrous and the necessity of performing slaughter, as a must. They will also see stunning an animal with low voltage as an act that seriously needs researching thoroughly. Most abbatoirs report that stunning results in an animal being knocked out for a peroid of 15-20 seconds. After this period the animal is back to normal and during the 20 seconds, it is alive and breathing. This means that when the animal is slaughtered, the animal would bleed the same way as it would when not stunned. In some circumstances animals have died as a result of stunning and can only be compared to a violent blow.

Likewise some faith believers will regard those who oppose bleeding an animal prior to consuming its meat as ludicrous and the necessity of performing slaughter, as a must. They will also see stunning an animal with low voltage as an act that seriously needs researching thoroughly. Most abbatoirs report that stunning results in an animal being knocked out for a peroid of 15-20 seconds. After this period the animal is back to normal and during the 20 seconds, it is alive and breathing. This means that when the animal is slaughtered, the animal would bleed the same way as it would when not stunned. In some circumstances animals have died as a result of stunning and can only be compared to a violent blow.
Your understanding and knowledge of the meat industry is frightening . . .

. . . and you still eat meat?
What do you mean 'your understanding and knowledge'?
Probably you should seriously consider increasing your knowledge based on facts and evidence provided by personnels within the relevant business sector, and when you do your nightmares will become a terrifying reality.........and yes I really do enjoy my meat provided its not scandalous!!!

Whilst not condoning any action leading to the death of even one dog aren't the irresponsible dog owners "administering poison" by allowing their dogs to foul the towpath and pavements? Dog faeces are responsible for a disease causing blindness and other nasty ailments. There has to be a change in the attitude of some dog owners. What if it was their child affected by these faeces.
Ha, and just what disease can you get from dog poop that causes blindiness? Really?! Wow. But you know what? What if someone's child got into the poison, now that could cause some "nasty ailments", dont ya think?

How very sad, where will this end?
Why don't the people who use the area get together Sunday armed with gloves & bags and have a mass clean up campaign . Come on folks have a little pride and clean it up:-).
No animal should suffer for human errors.

Toxocariasis is an infestation of humans, usually children, with the larvae of Toxocara canis, a small threadlike worm that resides in a dog's intestine.A dog harbouring the small round worm causes large numbers of worm eggs in its faeces, which can then contaminate the soil.

I hope the sick excuse for a human being who has done this cowardly despicable act dies a slow and painful death, in fact I put a curse on them to do so. I don't say this lightly; I'm sat here at 5.00 am in the morning after expensive visits to the Vet nursing a very sick dog who is suffering from a suspected poisoning. The cost isn't a problem, the little girl, God willing will make it, It's the fact that someone can plan and go out, and do such a premeditated act of cruelty. Trust me people, they're very mentally sick and they walk among us!

Let's just hope that the police find the mentally-challenged old git before some of the dead pet owners do.

Poison would probably be the least of his/her worries.

heard its 'spread' to witton park, where not only do i take my dog and clean up any 'mess' she makes, but where children play. When they catch this moron they should feed him/her rat poison. 90 per cent of the dog walkers at witton park clean up after their animals, this is sick and angers me as i am sure it angers most people. Id love to catch you at it and see how clever you are then.

It is not the 90% the poisoner is after! Perhaps his child has been blinded by dog faeces and he is after revenge. Agreed it is the wrong way to go about it but dog owners must take responsibility for their dogs. It is not the dogs fault.
