View Full Version : Dog Park Warning

04-10-2012, 12:07 PM
Saw this on Facebook, just makes me ill.

Dog park in Chicago and one in Massachusetts (didn't say where): finding cubes of cheese with nails in it.

Augusta, Maine: someone put antifreeze in the water bowls.

Of course, as this gets publicized, more idiots will do it.

IF you use a dog park, be very aware of what your dog eats, and take your own water and bowl.

That photo has been circulating for a while http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/cheese.asp of course doesn't mean people wouldn't do stuff like that (and have done as stated on snopes) so still be cautious.

This is untrue - see http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/facebook/ss/Dog-Park-Alert-Nails-In-Cheese.htm

Just because it is oft-posted on Facebook doesn't make it true, please do not spread any further. I'll leave this thread up, just to let other know not to spread it. The original picture you first see in an old one from Buenos Ares, Argentina, years ago.

Yup, someone just gave me the snopes link. Sorry, all.

I have a couple of friends who are always emailing me all kinds of warnings, etc. I have learned to check snopes before I forward anything anymore, since 99% of what they send is bogus.
