*** WARNING TO ALL DOG OWNERS AND WALKERS IN THE BURSLEM/STOKE ON TRENT/STAFFORDSHIRE AREA ***
Warning to dog owners as black puddings stuffed with razor blades, glass and tablets are found in Stoke-on-Trent
Police are investigating after photos emerged on social media today of the meat substance concealing dangerous items in Burslem.
At least two black puddings have been discovered in the Camoys Road area, but there could be more.
It is not yet known if any dogs have been harmed.
One of the black puddings was found near a bin.
These reports come after tennis balls with blades concealed inside were found at Lyme Park, near Stockport.
Rat poison was also discovered at Meir Aerodrome, off Normacot Grange Road - a popular dog-walking spot.
In a warning Lime Tree Vets said: "We have been informed today by a member of the public that a substance looking like rat poison has been spotted on Meir Aerodrome.
"Whilst rat poison in the UK is typically bright colours, we would highly recommend being extra vigilant when walking your pet around this area.
"The local council and police have been made aware. The location on the Aerodrome of this finding is the grass verge adjacent to the entrance of the fields on Normacot Grange Road – the lady has removed what she saw but this is not to say there is any more lying around.
To report any suspicious items, call Staffordshire Police on 101.
