A woman in Regina, Saskatchewan, experienced a dog owner’s worst nightmare when she found pieces of meat in her yard that had been stuck with razor blades.
Emma Medeiros said she was taking her two pups, Pandora and Ophelia, out for a bathroom break when she noticed three pieces of hot dog on the ground.
“It was super nice out so I decided to sit on the front patio while they go do their business, until I noticed my border collie Ophelia sniff a piece of meat that was in the yard,” Medeiros told BuzzFeed Canada.
She said she knew something was off because the meat had a bit of a shine, and when she went to inspect it, her “stomach just dropped.”
“My worst fear as being a dog owner — there were sharp shards of metal in it,” Medeiros said.
She uploaded a video of what she found to her Facebook page, warning other pet owners: “PLEASE CHECK YOUR YARDS!”

“It could have been someone’s child playing out front and not knowing any better and sticking that in their mouth,” she said. “It’s terrible to think of.”
Medeiros notified both the police and the Regina Humane Society.
