Poisoned food has been thrown around the streets and back gardens of Benito Juárez in Yucatan, Mexico, killing pets, strays and wildlife.
Dogs, cats, opossums and a raven have been found dead after a group yet to be identified placed poisoned pieces of fish, chicken or soup in plastic dishes throughout the neighbourhood and even threw pieces over some fences.
Over ten animals were found dead in their homes and in the streets the next morning. Five-year-old dog Wolf, twelve-year-old dog Sam and one-year old kitten Tanto were just a few of the victims.
Neighbours said that the same thing happened last year but went unreported. Now they had alerted the police in the hope of finding the criminals and prevent it from happening again.
Authorities are still trying to determine what kind of poison was used.
