“The Comber Greenway hosts a huge number of animal-loving dog walkers on a daily basis. It is a fantastic facility, so for someone to allegedly leave poison in what appears to be a deliberate attempt to affect dogs is a disgustingly reckless act of animal cruelty,” said Mr Lyttle.
“I have been in contact with the PSNI and Belfast City Council’s animal welfare and parks departments, and have been assured they are taking this matter seriously and actively investigating it.
“I would urge anyone using the Greenway to exercise vigilance and keep their dogs on their leads to ensure safety. Anybody with information should contact the police with it immediately.”
