Excerpt from the article;
"It [the poison] was mixed in with hamburger and thrown in the woods," Cate told WPR. "Everybody’s surmising that it was put out to kill wolves."

I agree, this is the most likely reason imop. 3 counties is a lot of area to cover and poison is so indiscriminate. I feel bad for those people who lost there pets. A nice hike turns into tragedy.

Very likely intended for wolves, and of course poison is indiscriminate and kills everything. 😞

The recent return of wolves to some areas up north is very polarizing.... and some people are lashing out.

It is wrong on so many levels--a cruel way to kill any wildlife, and so dangerous for domesticated animals. I pray all dog owners in or near areas affected will hear of this and keep their pets inside and leashed when out.

This is horrible and I hope who ever did this is caught.

This isn't the exact same thing but I just saw a FB notice/caution that our state has put out bait blocks that contain single dosages of Rabies to deliver rabies to wildlife but it does pose a threat to dogs especially those who have adverse reactions to it. MA just revised leash only law in state conservation land but many still practice off leash.

Anyone hiking up there really needs to pay attention to what season it is, and either leash their dogs or have a hardcore proofed call-off.... Which has been the case, even before this.

A few years ago I was up that way and took my dogs hiking on backcountry snowmobile trails. It was summer, when they're generally deserted. I rounded a corner and thought I was hallucinating - found myself standing in front of a giant 3' tall mountain of donuts and cake, in the middle of the trail. Between the bear baiting, bear hunting, and uptick in attempts to poison or trap wolves, it underscores the importance of having solid training on your dog, plus being acutely aware of your surroundings....

Yeah this is awful very upsetting. Awhile back In my neighborhood a family’s young daughter passed away. The day of the funeral the labrador got out and was found days later in the nearby woods dead killed by a bow n arrow. You really have to have control- real life challenges can come with a price and sometimes accidents happen, unfortunately sometimes there are no room for mistakes and sometimes they are fatal. Very sad for the families who lost their pets/family members.
