Toronto Hydro Launches Pet Safety Campaign

Toronto Hydro launched its annual " Be Safe" campaign reminding Toronto pet owners to be aware of outdoor electrical equipment and street fixtures. Hydro said temperatures around the freezing mark, wet sidewalks and salt can lead to contact voltage, electricity on the outside of outdoor electrical structures which can pose a shock risk to pets. Stray voltage from street lamps resulted in the deaths of  two dogs around the holiday season last year.
