Eight dogs have died and eight others are sick, reportedly from eating poisoned sausage left in a local park. Veterinarians say autopsies indicate someone is lacing the meat with a herbicide.

The poisonings began shortly after the media reported fresh tensions surrounding the issue of keeping dogs on leashes in city parks.

Canine owners fear the culprit is someone who got sniffed one time too many by an unleashed pet -- and decided to take revenge. They're packing fund-raisers around the city to contribute to a reward for information leading to an arrest.
