Board with nails found buried at Cherry Beach

People with pets are being warned to be cautious after a buried board with nails was found in the "Dog off Leash" area at Cherry Beach.
Toronto Police issued the alert Thursday afternoon.
The board, containing "numerous nails driven through it," was discovered Tuesday, about 100 metres from the west beach limit sign, near some bushes, Det.-Const. Lisa Prechotko, of 51 Division, said.
No one has been reported injured.
Similar incidents in Toronto parks and on beaches in recent years, often when sites have been disputed by people objecting to dogs being allowed to roam free — have successfully driven pet-owners away.
Police are investigating that as the motive behind the latest nail-burying incident.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-5100, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), or online at www.222tips.com.
