Vets confirms local dog poisoned

Thursday, May 7, 2015 — Raider, a purebred boxer who lived with his family in Leavitt Lake, is dead — the victim of poisoning.

Raider’s owner Crystal Couso said Raider was one of two pet boxers the family owns, and the other dog was unharmed. She also suspects other animals in the area have been poisoned as well.

Couso said Raider never left the family yard or roamed through the neighborhood, so she believes someone threw the D-Con (rodent poison) that took his life over the fence and Raider ate it. In fact, he was chained up in the backyard for several days before he became ill.
