(09/16/10) WOODLAWN - Numerous signs have been posted in Woodlawn to warn residents of possible animal poisonings in the neighborhood, but the ASPCA says some of the signs are fake.

Signs in the neighborhood bearing the ASPCA logo say that the ASPCA is investigating whoever poisoned animals in the area. The organization, however, says it has not received any complaints and has nothing to do with the signs.

Neighbors started raising awareness when a family?s dog died after being taken for a walk last week. Some residents think that the poison was put out for stray cats. One resident says he and his girlfriend walked up and down the block looking for liquid or powder that could have been the poison, but they say they never found anything.

The ASPCA says if caught, the person who made the signs could be charged with forgery or impersonation charges.
