Pet owners have warned of large quantities of mysterious ‘dog food’ being dumped in parts of Milton Keynes
The brown pellets have been found in large quantities on the ground in three different areas of Milton Keynes so far, according to social media.
No one knows if this is good dog food, but dogs run up to them and eat them.
Photos of the pellets are being shared on Facebook by dog owners and walking groups, with a warning they could be harmful.
The MK Dog Behavior and Training page read: “”Take care if you walk your dog in Oxley Park this morning. Someone “very helpfully” emptied an entire bag of dog food on the way from OP to the jail. It may not be sinister, but it can definitely lead to stomach aches.
He adds: “It seems a little strange to us, so be careful. There are also reports of the same at Crownhill.
Today the same thing happened in Newton Leys, where the pellets were dumped through a fence between the two lakes.
A dog owner shared how her pet ate some of the food before she could stop him. Fearing it was mixed with rat poison, he was taken to the vet, who induced vomiting and did blood tests.
The substance has still not been identified, but so far the dog does not appear to be affected.
“My advice is to keep your dogs away, period. You never know what’s in there and you can’t risk it,” she wrote.
Other members of the public wrote: “There have been several local posts about what is happening on the mk group of dogs – this seems very strange as it is a large amount of dog food in each location .
“It could be someone trying to feed wildlife, but definitely keep your dogs away just in case.”
If you know what pellets are or have spotted them in other parts of MK, please let us know.
