A Sydney council says its parks staff are on “high alert” after a local dog was poisoned by rat bait hidden inside meat at a popular inner-west dog-walking spot.

In a post to her Facebook page, Rozelle resident Lily Kenny said she was walking her dog Lola at a grassed reserve on the Bay Run at Lilyfield on Monday when the greyhound ingested a large amount of rat poison that had been “purposely planted in a local oval by some horrible person”.

“It breaks my heart that people can be this horrible and heartless,” she wrote in the post which has since received thousands of comments.

“I really hope no other dogs were affected by this, but please be cautious guys!”
