Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii — Big Island police are renewing their request for the public’s help in finding information about the fatal poisoning of a dog valued at $2,500.

According to police, a Hilo man reported his English mastiff began throwing up and died on Nov. 16. The dog had been in a fenced yard in upper Waiakea Uka.
They say a veterinarian who performed a post-mortem examination on the dog found chunks of potato containing rat poison.
Police are investigating the dog’s death as a cruelty to animals case.
Police say anyone with information about the case should call the department’s non-emergency line at 808-935-3311.
