Chocolate pieces seen as malicious

We recently returned from a weeklong trip along with our twoLabs. Upon returning home, the dogs were very happy to be running around. Imagine our horror when one of them ran in with a huge chunk of Hershey’s chocolate in his mouth, which we took away from him. He then went out and found another big hunk.

We went around with flashlights and found more pieces. In all, we found over half a pound from what looked to be two of the large Hershey bars. No wrappers were found.

We live on five acres and are completely fenced, cross-fenced and gated. There is no way that this could have happened by “accident.” We live in an area with a multitude of dogs, and we know that none of the dog owners would have done this. Some very malicious person is responsible, knowing full well that chocolate is toxic to dogs. Our next step is to report this to the sheriff.
