EVERY parent knows how their toddler loves to pick up things and put it straight into their mouth.

However, ruthless criminals, who laced pieces of sausage and threw them over the fence into an Acacia Street garden, could face murder charges instead of lesser charges for housebreaking.

The Greytown Gazette reported recently that two dogs had being poisoned in the area, followed by a burglary, which appears to be the modus operandi of these criminals. Fortunately, these doctored sausages were spotted and picked up by a resident.

This is an appeal to everyone - be alert about this criminal tactic. If any doctored meat is found please remove it and dispose of in a safe way and inform the Greytown SAPS, security firms and G911.
