A woman in Regina, Saskatchewan, experienced a dog owner's worst nightmare when she found pieces of meat in her yard that had been stuck with razor blades.

Emma Medeiros said she was taking her two pups, Pandora and Ophelia, out for a bathroom break when she noticed three pieces of hot dog on the ground.

"It was super nice out so I decided to sit on the front patio while they go do their business, until I noticed my border collie Ophelia sniff a piece of meat that was in the yard," Medeiros told BuzzFeed Canada.

She said she knew something was off because the meat had a bit of a shine, and when she went to inspect it, her "stomach just dropped."

She uploaded a video of what she found to her Facebook page, warning other pet owners: "PLEASE CHECK YOUR YARDS!"

"I don't think I have ever been so shocked in my life," she said. "It astounds me that someone would want to hurt my precious dogs, or any dog in that manner."

Medeiros has no idea who would do such a thing, and she's glad she noticed the suspicious meat before anything bad happened.

"It could have been someone's child playing out front and not knowing any better and sticking that in their mouth," she said. "It's terrible to think of."

Medeiros notified both the police and the Regina Humane Society.
