Gopher poison program suspended at city parks after dog becomes sick

WINNIPEG - The City of Winnipeg has suspended its gopher control program after an investigation found deficiencies in the work done.

Winnipeg Humane Society CEO Bill McDonald says a dog became ill after digesting poison pellets intended for gophers at Little Mountain Dog Park.

McDonald says the pellets are supposed to be placed down the gopher holes, which are then to be filled with earth so that dogs can't get at the poison easily.

But McDonald says signs warning dog owners of the poison were placed at a location where many dog owners didn’t see it.

The city says it will follow up with the company contracted to do the work, and has also sent city staff to parks where the company was doing work to monitor the situation.
