She needs to talk to a lawyer.
The Humane Society maybe could do something and could bring up animal cruelty charges..

Unfortunately it was too little, too late. We just heard that he died during the blood transfusion.

RIP Augustus 2010-2012

Oh my god that's awful. :( I'm so sorry.

That is terrible.....sorry.

I know I'd be angry with neighbors

It's really not the neighbor's fault. He must have really wanted it because they had it a good 6 inches from the fence on their side. Gus had already had one huge surgery from eating the entire underside of a couch, staples and all. If my sister and her bf had had any indication of them putting the poison out, they wouldn't have let him near the fence. He was just that type of dog. The only thing we knew of that he wouldn't eat was cigarettes. Those he would just carry hanging out of his mouth :)

I'm glad the neighbor really was not to blame....still a sad situation, but it won't grow into something worse.

My dog's got an upset stomach, I think. He's been eating grass when I take him out. Last year when I was still in Kansas, he had scabs all over his nose from digging for gophers.  >:(

Anyways, the second picture is a little old, but I loves it. I wrapped him up, and he fell asleep. simple as that.

He must have been someone's pet, a wild one would never come toward you like that.

I'd still call the cops on the neighbors.

It's really stupid (and probably against the law) to put rat poison around like that, so it is their fault.  I suppose it never rains on their land?  Or is it some magical poison that can't be washed away?

This is exactly what I thought. I can't say whether or not that's an illegal act, but seriously, who scatters rat poison around their property? There are twelve kinds of laws about disposing of paint, motor oil and batteries, how is it possible that rat poison wouldn't fall under that sort of law?

Yeah not sure of the criminal legality or of cruelty but it sure as hell is negligent.

It is illegal in most states.

Then a lawyer should definitely be consulted, at the very least.

Would be smart to stop any future problems.

I agree. Think of the other animals in the neighborhood.

Bob's right, anything toxic that can find its way into ground water I believe is illegal to dispose of even in regular garbage.  That's been made clear in notices on curbside garbage and recycling here, where they have 'hazardous waste' days where toxic materials can be taken to a particular drop-off point.  (I heard years ago that in some places it is illegal to even wash your car in your driveway because of the danger of soap/grime runoff entering the ground water.)

It is. People wash cars or who pressure wash driveways are supposed to 'collect' the runoff waste water to keep it from going into storm drains though I don't see or hear about this being enforced very often.. :-\

Also, six inches from the fence (which I assume is either near or on the property line) is no defense. It's not like he sprinkled it around on his patio and the dog was barging into his house. That is way too close to the property line to be pulling that sort of shit.

Turn the bastard in.
