A Lake Country resident's dogs are recovering after they ate meat soaked in antifreeze placed in her backyard.

The woman took her dogs to a local vet after she awoke to find her two dogs foaming at the mouth at 4 a.m., Dec. 2, according to an RCMP media release.

The liquid didn't freeze after she put the cut up sausages and hamburger in her freezer, so she believed the meat was soaked in antifreeze before it was put into her yard.

The vet confirmed the dogs had been poisoned with antifreeze.

“Her dogs are back home and doing well which we are very grateful for,” Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Const. Mike Della-Paolera said the news release issued today, Dec. 5.

The woman told police no one had ever expressed "concern or displeasure" for the dogs and that they're both well behaved and quiet.

“This type of crime not only puts animals at risk but our young citizens as well which is of great concern to us all," Const. Della-Paolera said.

RCMP continue to investigate what it calls a "completely unnecessary and extremely cruel" crime.

If anyone has any information they can call the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288 or leave an anonymous tip by contacting the Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and reference the file number 2022-74588.
