Remember kids, there's a statistical possibility that those who can be capable of this sort of cruelty towards animals are capable of taking this behavior UP the foodchain to humans, next.

This may just be a "test" of the poisoner's recipe for future intent.

If I knew anyone like this, they'd already be a name on as many agency watch lists as possible.

I had a dog killed from poisoned ground meat when I was a kid.  Saw him eating it and pulled him away from it.  Too late to do any good and didn't know it was poisoned until we found his body after he went missing, curled up in our shed.

Not that I advocate killing animals, but I would be willing to bet the asshole doing this is doing it because he is tired of "canine custodians" (they don't like to be called pet owners in Boulder) not picking up the crap that their friends leave behind.

People that poison animals are the worst kind of cowards. Can't stand them. What's worse is that they're always, and I mean ALWAYS, proud of their actions, like they did something awesome. Congratulations, you made animals die a horrible, painful, agonizing death because you don't like (insert animal here). What a big strong man you are.

Excellent point. And for the sake of accuracy I was wrong. Boulder voted in an ordinance to refer to them as "Pet guardians" rather than owners.

My guess also. To narrow it down further i would say someone who lives within 2 blocks of said park. Start with people who spend too much time working on their lawn.

When I was a kid one of our neighbors started putting out antifreeze to poison local cats. She was this 50-something year old woman who was obsessed with her garden, and I guess she took offense to the cat shiat and decided to proper solution was to kill them. Eventually the neighborhood figured out it was her and all us kids began a concerted campaign to make her life as miserable as possible. We'd dig up her garden and pour cleaning fluids all over whenever she was gone, we slashed her tires, we put bricks through her windows at 3 in the morning. When she went to get the mail kids would hide in the bushes and throw throw rocks at her. She must have called the cops dozens of times, but every time everyone would act shocked and claim they had no idea who was doing it. She eventually had to sell the house and move away. Good riddance.

People move there because they want to see bears wandering across their property, doing the cute bear things they see on nature shows. Then when a bear eats their pets, they try to file lawsuits against the city for not properly teaching wild bears to only do cute things.

I live in Boulder. I have someone in my neighborhood that hates pretty much everything and everyone, but she really hates dogs. I wouldn't be surprised if it was her doing this.

It actually worked pretty well, there is now only one fenced in area of the park where you can have dogs off leash.

I walk my dog almost every day and before we go, we always spend a little time in our yard so she can go potty, chase a few sticks and maybe take a few laps around the house.  I can't remember the last time she needed to take a dump while we were on our walk but I'll say that was at least two years ago.  Regardless, I try to keep her out of people's yards, even when she pees, and I bring a baggie just in case.  What I'm saying if somebody's dog is pooping in your yard, it aint mine, but my dog or someone else's who isn't pooping in your yard, could eat that and die.  I know someone who does something like that doesn't care, but f*ck.

Yeah, I am not an animal person. I don't dislike them but I just don't "get" the connection. That being said, I couldn't imagine the mindset that could do something like this.

And I felt bad for putting up ultrasonic motion sensing animal repellants. Because the neighbors allow their crap machines to run free.

It is hilarious when they trigger them though. I guess they are painfully loud to them, because after they come back down, they yelp away down the street. They have started to avoid my yard though.

Poisoning other people's pets is despicable.

That being said, there is ABSOLUTELY nothing you can do to keep other peoples animals out of your yard without making enemies. Pet owners are beyond infatuated with their animals and they barely feign any concern over the destruction of your property.

I have a garden surrounding the base of my mailbox and people have no issue letting their dog use it. Futility is the act of asking someone to stop peeing on your stuff.

Could you share which one you have?  It's been my experience that they are in the same realm as snake oil.  Wondering if it will keep deer/racoons/opossums/squirrels out of my garden.

It looks very similar to this

http://www.amazon.com/Yard-Sentinel-Electronic-Control-Repeller/dp/B 00 5KNVH18/ref=sr_1_cc_2?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1400528141&sr=1-2-catcorr&keyw ords=motion+sensor+dog+deterrent

But I think ours looks a bit different.  My wife bought them. Ours are battery opperated though, and they chew through batteries fairly quickly.  It has a frequency adjuster that you can select for different vermin including deer.  We have two, and I change the frequencies slightly when i refresh the batteries.  They also have adjustable motionsensors, so you can reduce how easy it is to make them go off.  When I trigger it, I hear a click as it goes on and another as it goes off. There is also a visible red light.

When I first set them out, I think I had the motion sensor turned down instead of up.  I watched as the neighbor's dog came up to one or its favorite poop spots that now had an alarm in it.  The dog was right next to it when it went off.  I wish I had that on video.

They wife and I are about to try the motion detecting water sprinklers to keep neighborhood cats out of our garden and backyard in general. I can feel those high frequency sound thingies and they make me feel like my eyes are about to pop out of my head, so I figured a water sprinkler is a better option.

Someone installed one of these in my old neighbourhood, but I could hear it! It was brutal and covered a large area very far from the house where it was installed. They lived near a school too so maybe the kids could hear it. I tried to confront them about it but they didn't answer the door. I could hear them inside too. Cowards. Anyway they got rid of it shortly after that so I guess I wasn't the only one who could hear it

Not everyone answers their front doors to unannounced guests.  I don't.  Most of the time they're salesmen or other solicitors.  Neighbors call ahead and parcel trucks announce themselves.

Yep, reading on most serial killers, animals are where they start first. Jeffrey Dahmer, Carlos Panzram, and Son Of Sam are classic examples. So I propose stoning this asshole with some frozen meatballs as punishment before he moves up his/her version of the food chain.
