Sonoma County sheriff's investigators are trying to find the person who deliberately poisoned several animals with oleander-laced cookies, killing a horse and a dog.

A woman called the sheriff's office on Feb. 12, saying two of her horses and her dog had been poisoned, said sheriff's Sgt. Cecile Focha. The canine and one of the horses died.

Veterinarians determined that the animals died of "oleander toxicity," most likely by eating homemade cookies that contained oleander, which is highly poisonous to animals, Focha said. Someone had deliberately placed the cookies on the woman's property along Kennedy Road near Sebastopol, Focha said.

A person of interest has been identified, Focha said. A deputy assigned to the sheriff's rural crime task force is investigating.

"We appreciate the concern for our animals’ welfare and we are sorry for the loss suffered by the owner," Focha said.
