Plastic Easter eggs found filled with antifreeze

Plastic Easter Eggs Found Filled with Antifreeze

PEABODY, MASS - Police in Peabody, Massachusetts are warning residents about plastic Easter eggs filled with antifreeze that have been found around town.

According to WCVB, the first egg was found on Dexter Street on June 4, and a nearby search by police discovered seven others on Aberdeen Avenue and Greenwood Road, police said. WHDH reports that the eggs had puncture holes in them, allowing the anti-freeze to seep out.

Peabody Police Captain Dennis Bonaiuto said the incident is being seriously investigated and charges could be filed.

Antifreeze can be very dangerous to children or pets if ingested. Pet owners should contact their vet immediately if their animal ingests antifreeze because they may be able to reverse the effects.

Sick people like this can’t be cured and reminds me of rabid dogs. The only cure is to put them down and be done with it……….

Open Season on sicko's like them. Kill them in the streets and use them as fertilizer. At least that will give some meaning to their otherwise useless existence in life!!

It's good to have awareness by writing these events, then kids can be warned so they won't be hurt.

Friend. You don't think this is an issue that demands a very very stiff penilty for this kind of behavore. If you think you can cure this kind with pets and kisses you are the one needing to rethink this

In your headlines to come to this article you say, "damage may be irreversible" yet in the article it says vets may be able to reverse the effects. What kind of irresponsible journalism is that?????

Humans have a higher threshold than animals, and the larger the body, the higher the Total Blood Volume, the more dilute the antifreeze becomes. Dogs and cats lick antifreeze because glycol is sweet.
