otrovEarly in December on an entrance door window to a building in one of Belgrade downtown streets, passers-by could notice a paper where there was a message written containing a poisoning threat addressed to dog owners who walk their pets in the neighbourhood. Unknown author wrote that poison has been placed around because dogs dirty their house and jeopardize hygiene. The citizens were very upset and they informed police which started investigation.

From threat to execution there is usually only one step. We hope that the police investigation will be carried out successfully because since long ago throwing poison around has been a way used by some citizens to fight dogs. Although poisoning has been rated as a threat to general security and criminal offence it happens rather frequently and until now no violator has been found.
