Meatballs stuffed with fishing hooks found at Florida dog park

On Tuesday, a dog was taken to the vet after eating a meatball stuffed with a fish hook at Bicentennial Park in Ormond-by-the-Sea. Upon inspecting the meat, it was discovered fish hooks were embedded in small meatballs.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office is warning pet owners who go to Bicentennial Park to be careful. It appeared as though the meat had been frozen and was being thawed in the sun, the report stated.

Police aren't sure who placed the meat, however, Bowen responded to a similar report at the same park two years ago.

Deputies took photos of the meat balls intact before cutting them open.


Photos were taken of the hooks and the hooks were placed in evidence, deputies say.

The county's animal control called an area veterinary hospital, which did an X-ray on the dog but found no hooks inside the animal.

Volusia County Parks and Recreation closed the park while authorities investigated the incident. After multiple searches with negative results on locating any more items, the parks were reopened. A deputy searched the area and found one other meatball with a hook inside.

At least six contaminated meatballs were found at the park for small dogs.
