Some residents of the Sunset District have been warned to look out for poisoned meatballs like the ones apparently targeting dogs in other San Francisco neighborhoods.

Monday evening, the San Francisco Police Department confirmed by email that its crime-scene investigation unit collected some meatballs at the Sunset Reservoir, near 24th Avenue and Ortega Street.

Sunset District resident Sheila Fitzell, walking along the Sunset Reservoir Monday afternoon with her three children and three dogs, said she hadn’t seen any meatballs but had received a handwritten note in her home mail slot warning her about potentially poisoned meatballs found in the area.

An Ocean Beach Bulletin reporter investigated the perimeter of the reservoir but found no further evidence of the potentially poisoned treats.
