First Auburn's Trees, Now NC State's Dogs Are Poisoned
Those of us in the OSG HQ thought the poisoning of the trees at Auburn's Toomers Corner was off the charts. We had no clue there would be copy cats out there.
Four Tamaskan dogs, two directly related to NC State's mascot "Tuffy" were poisoned.
According to the Daily Advance of Elizabeth City, N.C. the dogs owner John Bannow saw the dogs acting strangely Sunday and found a large bowl containing fish that later was determined to be laced with antifreeze. The bowl was set in a freshly dug hole and covered in grass.
Tuffy's father three year old Blaze and sister 2-year old Kana Ti' along with two other dogs are recovering and will survive.
The Tamaskan breed originated in Finland and are bred to have a wolf-like appearance.
