Dog Biscuits with nails

A further appeal has been made after three dog biscuits stuffed with nails were discovered in Glasgow.

It is the sixth time since March the Scottish SPCA has been made aware of potentially dangerous food being found in the city's Anderston area.

The latest incident was raised with inspectors on three separate occasions after they discovered the biscuits in Dorset Square, off Dorset Street.

Inspector Lara Vickery said: "We are grateful that no animal was harmed by the biscuits and we are thankful to the vigilant members of the community who alerted us to these incidents.

"This is the second time we have appealed for information. The first time biscuits were found was in March this year.

"In total, this is the sixth incident of its kind we have had reported to us in the Anderston area in just over a year.

"There were reports of dogs ingesting poison in Alexandra Park in Glasgow just days after our first plea.

"This is a calculated and abominable criminal offence and we will do all we can to find the person responsible. It seems they won't stop until an animal is hurt.

"Someone knows something and we are desperate to put a stop to this."
