Another dog-walker has raised concerns over a campaign targeting pets.

Andrea Parkin found pieces of chicken spread by a path used by dog-walkers in Crosland Moor.

She fears it may have harmed dogs because of sharp bones inside the pieces, or may even have been poisoned.

It is the latest in a series of incidents in the area which are worrying pet-owners.

Last year a dog died after eating poisoned food scattered around Blackmoorfoot reservoir.

And last week, pieces of chicken laced with safety pins were found scattered on a playing field off Dryclough Road, Crosland Moor.

Police and Kirklees Council environmental health officers are now investigating the latest incident.

Mrs Parkin, of Beaumont Park, who was walking her Jack Russell dogs Pip and Dot, said: “It wasn’t as it if was a bag of food dumped with other rubbish; there were just the pieces of chicken spread along the side of the path.

“There were thighs and wings with very sharp bones which would harm a dog. It had been raining heavily so if the meat had been poisoned it may have washed off.

“It was in the path leading to fields off Balmoral Avenue and it’s a very popular spot with dog-walkers.

“Many of them let their dogs off the lead in the field and they could well have eaten the chicken pieces.

“I just want others to be aware. Someone seems to be deliberately targeting dogs. I know people get upset about dog fouling and irresponsible owners who do not clean up, but this is not the way to protest.”

The safety pins and meat were found by school chef Liz O’Neill, who made the find next to the clubhouse on the lower field at Dryclough recreation ground.
