Kenneth Hyland of Boston, MA was arrested on charges of scattering antifreeze soaked hot dogs around a lawn in attempt to poison neighborhood dogs.

The Boston Globe reported that concerned neighbors saw Hyland carrying a 5-gallon bucket of what appeared to be hot dogs soaking in antifreeze. As he finished mowing the grass, he began spreading the hot dogs around the lawn. When approached by one of the witnesses to the event, Hyland allegedly admitted to trying to poison dogs.

After a brief argument, Hyland left the scene and neighbors collected the hot dogs and took them to a nearby police station. A witness says Hyland has been seen previously doing the same thing after landscaping.

Hyland’s attorney denies all charges and asserts that no dogs have been poisoned or injured as a result of his actions. The defendant’s attorney claims that the allegations are based on disputes between Hyland and his neighbors over dogs using his lawn as a bathroom.

Hyland was released on bail and is ordered to appear on October 19 for a pretrial hearing.
