Dog owners in Newport, Rhode Island are on high alert after a dog walker found several hot dogs stuffed with nails scattered across multiple lawns in one seemingly dog-friendly neighborhood.

This isn’t the first time someone has planted dangerous items in an attempt to injure or kill dogs and, sadly, it won’t be the last. But, let it serve as a reminder to always leash your dog and be continually mindful of what they’re sniffing or eating outside and during walks.

Residents of Thurston Avenue and surrounding streets in Newport, Rhode Island are being alerted to keep a close watch on their dogs during walks after a resident walking his dog found several pieces of hot dog stuffed with small, sharp nails had been scattered across lawns.

Newport Police are urging anyone with information to contact the detective investigating the incident. So far, no suspects have been named.

    This person is probably already hurting animals himself let alone this cruel action. Clearly this idiot doesn’t have animals to love on. He should be somewhat easy to find .

    I love animals especially dogs but STOP!taking your dogs out to POOP!on other people’s lawnost people without pets that can’t take care of them get UPSET! You are only creating the problem yourselves and causes the dogs death or serious injury. Also need to bring a poop grabber with a garbage bag and may just solve the problem.

      I don’t know if that necessarily is the problem . An action like this is the same sick mind that put things in children’s Halloween treats . They or whoever is hurting those that are innocent . They will use any excuse to get away with justification of such acts . Evil people and abuser !
      I own dogs and I do agree people need to practice picking up after their dogs .
