Emma Medeiros was walking her dogs when she spotted something unusual in her backyard – it was three shiny pieces of hot dog just seemingly lying there for her doggies. When she got closer, the lady couldn’t believe her eyes – the sausage was pierced with razor blade fragments.
“I don’t think I’ve ever been so shocked in my life…,” Madeiros told Buzzfeed Canada. “I mean, you see it in movies, you see it in big cities, you don’t think it’s going to happen to you in Regina, that’s for sure,” the woman’s boyfriend Kaleb Smith commented.
“It could have been someone’s child playing out front and not knowing any better and sticking that in their mouth,” Madeiros said. “It’s terrible to think of.”
The couple had filed a statement with police. The couple also uploaded a video of the hot dog with the following caption: “Anyone around me, PLEASE CHECK YOUR YARDS!!!!”
The person who did this is yet to be found. As per local animals protection act, those found guilty of animal cruelty can face fines up to $25,000 and/or jail time up to two years.
