Meat filled with fish hooks found at Florida dog park

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office is warning pet owners who go to Bicentennial Park to be careful.

A police officer found fish hooks hidden within balls of meat placed at a dog park in Florida's Volusia County when responding to a report of contaminated meat.

Police aren't sure who placed the meat, however, Bowen responded to a similar report at the same park two years ago.

The fish hooks were discovered Tuesday by two park-goers after one of their dogs started eating a meatball left at the park.

"Fair to say that the miserable excuse for a human being who did this has a cold lump of meat for a heart!" The meat appeared to have the consistency and smell of liverwurst.

Deputies took photos of the meat balls intact before cutting them open.

The park was temporarily shut down while teams searched for more, and reopened after several searches by Volusia County Animal Control. They stated they were not going to test the meat for chemicals but did find hooks in the meat that was taken there.

Deputies said there are no cameras at the park, but discussions have been under way to install them.
