Police encourage residents to report suspicious activity
Recently the Bryan Police Department initiated an investigation into an incident that possibly included contaminated meat found near Meadow Lane. As has been reported by the media, several dogs may have become ill from the meat
If tainted, the meat could be poisonous and highly dangerous to animals and humans, according to police. The Police Department has submitted meat samples to a lab and results are pending. At this time, officials have not confirmed initial information claiming the meat is tainted with Temik, but the Bryan Police Department is not ruling out that possibility.
Temik is a pesticide used to protect agriculture and horticultural crops from a variety of insects. If swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin by humans, Temik can cause extreme illness and even death.
In the interest of public safety, residents are asked to report to the Bryan Police Department suspicious substance or material, especially if it is a meat product found in the Meadow Lane area. To make a report, please contact the Bryan Police Department at 361-3888. If an emergency exists, contact 911.
