DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton police are investigating after a dog was poisoned.
Officers were called to a home in the 100 block of Sherman Street over the weekend.
According to a police report, the homeowner, Gene Mitchem, told officers that someone replaced the water in his 1-year-old pit bull’s bowl with antifreeze.
He told officers the dog appeared to be sick. The report says a vet suggested giving the dog milk and crackers to dilute the poison.
The dog is recovering.
Mitchem says he has no idea who would endanger his dog.
