Who would possibly kill more than 10 dogs and then dump their carcases on a street in Tunapuna.

That's the question hundreds are asking after a Tunapuna woman posted a photo on Facebook appealing for help.

Shefalie George's post shows the dogs piled upon each other.

"This is the scene at Upper Fairley Street, Sesame Street, Tunapuna," she said.

"Woke up this morning to a gruesome discovery where 10 dogs were poisoned and were found dead at various locations," she added.

George says that several reports were made to the relevant authorities but to no avail.

"I'm posting this with hopes of getting some assistance because it's a health hazard to the people in the community especially to the young children. (HELP US PLEASE)", she said.

An official at the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation who asked not to be named would only say that the situation is being addressed.

The post has been shared hundreds of time on Facebook where dozens of people have condemned the act.
