Cumberland county, NJ residents are urged to take precautions when walking their pets after three suspicious dog deaths in Vineland.

More specifically, trails along the Dividing Creek appear to have been laced with poisoned meatballs. Testing is underway to try to determine the toxins employed after a first level test came up negative for the most common poisons.

Though the trails are on private property, the SPCA says that if the meat turns out to be poisoned, whoever is to blame faces criminal charges. Anyone with information is asked to contact the SPCA at 856-691-1500.

Please share in the interest of those affected.
