Washington Humane Society finds no evidence of poisoned dog treats being left in the Logan Circle area

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

The Washington Humane Society (WHS) determined allegations of someone leaving poisoned dog treats in the Logan Circle area of the District was unfounded.

WHS was alerted to the claim Thursday, but the Humane Law Enforcement division's investigation did not find any evidence supporting the claim.

The investigation included an outreach to every veterinary clinic in D.C. and to a pet owner whose dog became sick after eating an unknown toxin.

Humane Law Enforcement officers decided to close the investigation because of the limited cooperation of the owner of  the sick dog and the lack of direct evidence to support the claim. The case will re-open if more evidence is found, WHS said.

WHS warned that pet owners should be cautious of toxic material when walking their pets in public areas. They have also advised people to go immediately to a veterinarian if a pet shows signs of vomiting, lethargy, changes in breathing or abnormal gum color.
