Dog Park Danger: Fish Hooks Found In Meatballs

When a dog was eating a meatball, owners discovered several balls of meat with fish hooks inside scattered around the small dog park.

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. (WESH) -- Balls of meat filled with fish hooks were found at a dog park in Florida.

When a dog was eating a meatball, owners discovered several balls of meat with fish hooks inside scattered around the small dog park at Bicentennial Park in Ormond-by-the-Sea.

The dog was taken to the vet and had an X-ray performed. The veterinarian determined the dog did not ingest any hooks, but fish hooks were found in all the piles, five hooks in total discovered.

There is no surveillance video at the park and nobody saw who might have placed the tainted meat there, police said.

A police report notes that there is a meeting Wednesday night about expanding the dog park and that some are vocally against the expansion.
