A pest control firm has been given a warning after a dog died from eating poisoned bread meant to kill pigeons.
Tiger, a jack russell terrier, started limping, trembling and foaming at the mouth after apparently swallowing bait left by the side of a Housing Board block.
The 10-year-old pet was rushed to see a vet but died on the way.
West Coast Town Council told The Straits Times it had warned its pest control contractor to comply with safety procedures.
