    Invercargill council puzzled by meat cakes

    Invercargill dog owners should keep their dogs on a lead around Sandy Point after mystery meat cakes left one dog in need of veterinary help.


    Bizarre meat and onion assemblages, topped with flower petals, have Invercargill City Council warning locals to keep their dogs on a leash.

    Three of the strange objects were found at a Sandy Point carpark and were described as flax tied around pieces of meat, onion and flower petals.

    It was unclear whether the meat had been laced. Onions are toxic to cats and dogs so the council was asking the public to keep their dogs on leads.

    One dog owner took their animal to the veterinarian after it ate the meat. It could not be established whether the dog had been poisoned but now appeared to be well.
