One of our Riverview II neighbors on Prune Tree Drive found POISONOUS Tylenol-laced meatballs in their backyard this weekend. Such substances are intended to poison beloved pet dogs; these are NOT accidental poisonings and are occurring in our own backyards. This is not the first occurrence in Riverview II and must be stopped! The person/persons leaving poisonous substances in our yards are trespassing; they walk between homes and toss poisonous tidbits in backyards. Be on the lookout for suspicious persons and actions; take a picture of the person if you can for evidence; check your yard for signs of poisonous objects; supervise your dog in both your yards and the common green spaces and teach him/her the “leave it” command. Lastly, know who to call in an emergency and where to go.
Anyone who has a problem with barking dogs, should call Sonoma County Animal Control to make a report and not take the matter in their own hands.
