Lower East Side Serial Dog Feeder on the Loose

Posted on: December 8th, 2011 at 10:09 am by

“Don’t feed the pigeons” signs are ubiquitous in the city.  It’s just a fact of life.  And, as of today, the same is temporarily true for canines. At least for now.  Lower East Side dog owners, pay heed.  There’s apparently a serial dog feeder on the loose in the neighborhood.

An announcement taped to a lightpole at the northwest corner of Orchard and Grand spells the “safety warning”:

Someone has been tying bones and meat to the park fence at dog height on Essex Street just below the Hester Street/Market area.

Beware, and if you see this please call the police/report it or remove it so no other dog ingests it.

Speaking of excited doggies…
