Just seen this on Facebook so cross-posting:

WARNING...IMPORTANT PLEASE READ ....IMPORTANT



"Poison Parsnips" have been washed up on Drains Bay Beach and have already poisoned and killed one of our client's dogs.
This was confirmed as the cause of death by the Environmental Agency.
A picture of these Poisonous Parsnips is below for you to see so as you will know what to look out for. The best thing is to avoid walking your dogs on beaches until we get confirmation that it is again safe to do so.
If eaten by an animal the poison will kill within 10-20 mins and if even just licked by an animal it could take up to 5-6 days to die.
Please pass this on to anyone you know with a dog and specially ones who like beach walks. Thanks

These seem to be getting around sadly a staffie from a nearby town died from eating it too, It was owned by a vet who rushed both of her dogs to the practice but sadly only one could be saved .

Thanks Wendy.

There seems to be a lot of weird things about at the moment, obviously everyone should take extra care.

I have never heard of this either, someone on a FB page yesterday had a very poorly dog after they had been to the beach, I will have to see if I can find it and let them know just as a precaution

I have to admit I'd never heard of this either, I thought I'd crosspost here

Apparently, if a dog even just licks this substance the dog can die, it must be awful
