Multiple dogs sickened in suspected poisoning

JACKSONVILLE, Ore. – Dog owners were shocked to learn that multiple dogs had been poisoned in Jacksonville.

Jacksonville Police said the report came in January 11 that three dogs had been poisoned near Applegate and Graham Street.

According to Chief David Towe, the dogs were showing symptoms like seizures.

“The vet strongly suspects and we actually have recovered items that would suggest the dogs have been poisoned,” Towe said.

Alison Stevens lives in the area and said she is concerned.

“It is just one more thing to watch out for, we have to watch out for cars here because they go so fast. Now I have to watch out for food that has been put on the ground,” Stevens said.

NBC5 are told all of the sickened dogs are recovering.
