A council is warning dog owners to keep their fur babies safe after a pile of sausages with nails inside were found in a park.

As a result, he urgently had to be rushed to the vets due to impact of the sharp nails in his stomach.

On Tuesday, January 19, Azaar sadly passed away and a police investigation was launched into the incident.

His owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, quickly warned other residents in Wokingham and surrounding areas of the sausages to ensure other dogs don't end up killed.

The incident was reported to Thames Valley Police yesterday and no arrests have been made since.

A police spokesman said: "The investigation has been filed pending any further evidence coming to light."

The community has been warned to keep a 'watchful eye' on their dogs following the horrific incident.

Wokingham Borough Council released a statement, which said: “We are saddened by the incident involving Afghan hound, Azaar, and want to offer our condolences to the owner. We have spoken with them to gather more information.

“Our rangers have inspected the location in question and have scoured the country park to check for any further sausages that have been spiked with nails.

“We want to reassure visitors that our rangers have not found any further sausages or other items of concern, but would encourage all dog owners to keep a watchful eye on dogs whilst visiting Dinton Pastures."
