A Brussels commune has issued a warning to inhabitants following a case of poisoning leading to the death of a dog last Friday, according to local media.

On its Facebook page, the commune of Ganshoren asked residents to be careful with their dogs following a case of poisoning in the Beeckmans-De Bast district. The publication has worried many residents who are wondering about this case.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Animals Veeweyde (the largest and oldest animal welfare company in Belgium) was called to the scene, but the dog died on route to the shelter, reports BX1.

“The owner of the dog did not want to do an autopsy. It is therefore difficult to say exactly what happened,” the association said.

The municipality of Ganshoren therefore asks the inhabitants to pay close attention to their dogs’ state of health and to contact a veterinarian immediately in case of doubt.
