A late news article explained how an area of the New Forest has been revealed as toxic. Some kind of toxin in the earth has been picked up by animals, it is feared. Vets think they have been poisoned through small cuts in their legs or paws. Latchmore Brook in Hampshire, United Kingdom is the site of this disaster.
Latchmore can be seen on this map
The area was used to test bombs in World War II meaning that experiments involving deadly chemicals may be to blame. The water or soil-borne poison may have been distributed by heavy rain in this popular forest area.
Tracey Matherick, 45, from Chard, Somerset experienced the affect on which this toxin causes on dogs. One of her Siberian Huskies came home from a walk in the New Forest with a sore paw. Tracey and her husband did not think anything of it at first.
‘Two days later her whole paw and leg had swollen up’
She took her dog Boo to the vet where she had ‘treatment after treatment’. Tests showed Boo had kidney and liver failure meaning that Tracey was forced to put her down.
Boo’s paw after it became infected.
Tissue samples from the dead dogs have been sent to a US Laboratory, hopefully a cure can be found. The deaths are also being investigated by the Forestry Commission, the Environment Agency and New Forest District Council.
Anyone who does visit the area is advised to wash their dogs’ paws, examine them thoroughly and seek help if there are signs of injury.
Please be careful with your dogs when choosing places for them to walk and let everyone know about this tragedy.
