Rio de Janeiro’s Civil Police are investigating whether the use of a glyphosate-based herbicide was responsible for the poisoning of 40 dogs in a neighborhood west of Rio. At least seven dogs have died with signs of poisoning within a month in the region. The information comes from Folha de S. Paulo.

The herbicide is generally used by farmers to prevent the growth of weeds in crops and can also be used for garden maintenance. Some owners suspect that the herbicide is being used in apartment buildings in the affected neighborhood to prevent weeds from proliferating.

The police also analyze the images of the security cameras present in the streets of the neighborhood and must call the employees of the condominiums to give statements.
