DOG owners have taken to Facebook to warn about chicken bones laced with rat poison at Northwood Park.

Katie Munn posted on the Dog Owners Isle of Wight UK Facebook page: “Somebody is throwing chicken bones with rat poison around Northwood Park. A few dogs have been hospitalised from this.

“So sad, I go most days but its putting me off going for a little while. Just want to make more dog walkers aware.”

Another dog walker said the bones appeared to have been cleared up, but urged people to be vigilant.

UPDATE 2.13pm: A spokesperson for the Northwood House Charitable Trust, which runs the park, said: "We have investigated as best we can, and have found no traces.

"Be assured we are aware of the report, and would like any walkers who spot anything suspicious to report to us."
