Joseph Clark received a note on Tuesday, promising to ‘poison’ one of his dogs, a jug (a cross between a pug and a Jack Russell), if it didn’t stop ‘constantly barking’.

Mr Clark said: ‘I felt scared, upset and angry. My dog does bark quite a bit, but we will either tell him off or call him inside.

‘Whoever sent this letter to me is sick and twisted.’
