Eat­ing live­stock feed killed dogs found on Lock­port road­side

Two dogs found dead Jan. 3 on the side of Wil­son Road in Lock­port died from eat­ing live­stock feed, Ni­a­gara County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Capt. Bruce El­liott said Thurs­day.

Tox­i­col­ogy tests were done by the Michi­gan State Univer­sity Vet­eri­nary Di­ag­nos­tic Lab­o­ra­tory.

“They died from a feed pel­let that’s usu­ally used for live­stock. They can be harm­ful to do­mes­tic an­i­mals when in­gested in large quan­ti­ties,” El­liott said.

A necropsy Jan. 10 by an SPCA of Ni­a­gara vet­eri­nar­ian con­cluded the 2-year-old dogs — a wire-haired ter­rier and a Lhasa Apso — were poi­soned. Their fur was singed, but that did not con­trib­ute to their deaths, El­liott said..

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call El­liott or In­ves­ti­ga­tor Brian Bloom at 438-3327.
