A new warning has been issued to dog walkers after more potentially poisonous food was found left at a popular beauty spot.
The Examiner previously reported that a dog had died after eating what was feared to be mouldy and harmful food left at Blackmoorfoot Reservoir.
Now another dog walker has made another find, amid fears someone could be out to deliberately harm pets.
The items included pomegranates, grapes and onions and was partly covered with blue mould, which can be deadly to dogs.
Mr Parr, of Linthwaite, is currently awaiting the results of toxicology tests to help determine how Spud died.

Last Monday teatime another dog walker Brenda Normington, 63, of Cowlersley, was walking her Labradoodles Ruby and Maisie when she stumbled across more mouldy food.
“I was just on the way back near the entrance from the Helme Lane end when I saw some bread and then some green-blue mouldy stuff,” she said.
“I looked more closely and saw rice, chapatis and toast coated in something green and orange.
“But the most sinister thing was raw meat, maybe chicken or pork. I could maybe understand it if someone had eaten a takeaway and dumped it but this was nothing like that.”
Mrs Normington, who walks at the reservoir daily, went back to her car and scooped the food into carrier bags.
“I just want to warn people about this because dogs off leads will always snoop around,” she said.
“We can all suspect the worst and we don’t want to get too paranoid but something is not right.”
Mrs Normington reported the find to landowner Yorkshire Water but added: “It’s difficult to know how they could police this.”
A Facebook group called Dog Walkers Safety has been set up and at least two other dogs are known to have been taken ill in the same way.
A spokesman for Yorkshire Water said: “We are sorry to hear about the unfortunate death of Mr Parr’s dog and have removed the dumped food in question from the area.
“Our advice to all dog owners is to err on the side of caution and keep them on a lead as this is the only way they can be monitored at all times.”
