BAY RIDGE, Brooklyn — The Bay Ridge Neighborhood Watch has come up with more video proof that some people are deliberately killing birds, cats, squirrels and even some dogs in their neighborhood.

Brian Baglioni, from the Neighborhood Watch, has a camera mounted on his fire escape, pointed at one of the many trees in the area where animals congregate.

In February we showed you surveillance video of one man poking bird feeders out of the tree at five in the morning, dumping the bird seed at the base of tree. He then pours what appears to be anti-freeze on the seeds.

The attacks began last August in certain areas of Bay Ridge, from 91st to 93rd streets—between Ridge and 4th Avenues.

Members of the Neighborhood Watch have found shards of glass mixed in with the bird seed, and bowls of food put out containing what some say may be rat poison or other types of harmful chemicals.

The latest video, shot last month, shows two people at 2:30 a.m. putting some unknown substance at the base of the same tree.

It is white powder and some of the residents believe it is boric acid that gets mixed with the bird seed.

There are also more pictures of dead birds and other animals taken by members of the Neighborhood Watch.

Residents are working with the NYPD Animal Cruelty Squad.

A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered for information leading to the people involved in the poisoning of the animals in Bay Ridge.
