iStock/Thinkstock(SAN FRANCISCO) — Police in San Francisco are hunting for someone who may be targeting pets as more than 30 poisoned meatballs have been discovered.

The tainted meatballs, thought to be deadly to dogs and cats, have been scattered throughout a neighborhood known as Twin Peaks.

The meatballs are hidden in places dogs like to search and cats like to hunt, like behind stairwells and in hedges, bushes, and carports.

The suspect might be a repeat offender, as the meatballs are similar to some found last year when a dachshund died and another dog became ill after eating meatballs thought to be poisoned.
