Authorities are looking for a man they say tossed balls of hamburger laced with glass over the fences of two yards in Spokane Valley last week.

The man, described as white and in his 50s by a witness, heaved the tainted meat over fences near the corner of North Vista Road and East Buckeye Avenue around 7 p.m. Thursday, according to a news release. The suspect stood about 6 feet tall, weighed around 250 pounds, is bald and was wearing a gray jacket, according to Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Services (SCRAPS).

The suspect faces potential felony charges of first-degree animal cruelty, according to SCRAPS investigators. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the agency at (509) 477-2532.
