    SPOKANE, Wash. - For the fifth time in less than a week, animal control officers are investigating a report of suspicious meatballs being found near animals on Spokane's South Hill. Three dogs have been reported dead after eating meatballs found in their yard which some believe is tainted with poison. An official with Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Services (SCRAPS) says meatballs found on the South Hill will be sent to Washington State University for testing.>>

















(Testing concluded that a dog's death earlier this month was not
linked to the poison strychnine found in meatballs that have killed
three other dogs)


SPOKANE, Wash. - The death of a dog on Spokane's South Hill earlier this month was not the result of strychnine poisoning, according to an animal control officer with SpokAnimal.

The animal died on March 2 near 17th and Manito. The dog's owner went inside to speak on the phone and when she returned, the dog was convulsing and later died at Manito Vet Clinic.

Veterinarians were able to take the contents of the dog's stomach and send them to a lab at Washington State University for testing. Officials say that no strychnine was found in the dog's stomach contents.

The owner may decide to have additional testing done to determine what killed her dog.

It was previously thought that the dog's death may have been caused by meatballs placed in other Spokane yards that were found to contain the poison.
