De Beauvoir’s pet owners are urged to be on the look-out, after two cats and a dog died after eating meat laced with anti-freeze.

The contaminated meat, which the RSPCA believes was left out to kill foxes, was found in Ufton Road gardens.

The RSPCA and police have circulated to surrounding residents warning them it is illegal.

An RSPCA spokesperson said they are investigating and appealing for help from the public.

“If anyone suspects that their pet has been poisoned they should seek urgent veterinary advice,” he said.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation is urged to contact the RSPCA investigation line on 0300 123 8010 quoting incident number 1172/15/10.
