A calf has been dumped among rubbish in Co. Roscommon.
Cllr Paschal Fitzmaurice shed light on the issue on social media earlier this afternoon (Thursday, November 19th).
“It is very disheartening to see the dumping of waste and dead animals in the countryside. I took this photo today at Corlis Bog after receiving reports.”
“To make matters worse, it appears a second dead calf was dumped overnight. A lot of the materials could have been recycled at the recycling centre.”
“The litter warden is aware and hopefully some shred of proof can be gathered and attributed to the perpetrators.”
By law, farmers are obliged to have all dead livestock on their farm collected by registered dead animal collectors for transport to either an approved knackery or rendering plant.
