For the second time in the past month a Brookfield resident has reported to police that someone has thrown nails embedded in cubes of cheese into her backyard, apparently in the hopes that the homeowner’s dogs will eat them.

Police responded to a home in the 2900 block of Prairie Avenue at about 10 a.m.  Wednesday to investigate the most recent incident. The homeowner stated that at 7:30 a.m. she noticed multiple pieces of cheese with nails stuck in them scattered in her backyard. The cheese appeared to have been tossed in the backyard between midnight and 7:30 a.m.

Wednesday’s incident comes just a few weeks after a similar incident at the same address. On the morning of Oct. 12, the homeowner called police to report about 20 cubes of cheese containing nails scattered in the backyard. The family has two dogs that play in the yard.

The dogs do not appear to have eaten any of the cheese cubes on either occasion.
