Des Plaines Police are warning dog owners to watch out now that cut-up hot dogs have been found on the lawn of a condo building: hot dogs apparently filled with rat poison.
The condo building: just five minute walk from the Des Plaines train station.
Deputy Police Chief Chester Zaprzalka says they got a call from a woman who’d been walking her dog in the area around Perry and Laurel.
“She had seen several cut-up hot dogs on the front lawn in front of a condo building right there in that area,” Zaprzalka said. “In the hot dogs, it was kind of hollowed out with a bluish tint. And she called the police believing it had some sort of poison in it.”
