Las Vegas police are currently investigating repeated acts of animal cruelty in a local neighborhood.

Lake community residents believe that their pets are being targeted as yet another dog was raced to the vet after consuming poisonous seeds. The seeds were found in a meatball that had been thrown into the owner’s backyard. It was found after their dog started having fits and seizures.

This is not a unique incident, as several other neighbors had also had food that was laced with various forms of poison tossed into their backyards over the course of 8 years.

This strange recurring case of animal cruelty has gone so far as to discourage people from getting dogs out of fear of having them poisoned.

Though the Las Vegas police have been investigating these cases, they have little to nothing to work with as there is no evidence to point to a possible culprit.

PETA warned neighbors in the area to regularly inspect their yards as well as keep an eye on their pets when outside as a precaution.
