    I believe I heard that antifreeze has a sweet taste to it, so animals would lick at it not knowing it was bad based on taste. Children too.

    This is so awesome. My car leaks antifreeze (time for a new car) and I always worry about my little doggie Bo sneaking out in the garage and licking it up.
