Across the water…

This morning.

Alan Healy, in the Evening Echo, in Cork, reports that a man and a woman were separately convicted for animal welfare offences last week.

The woman was fined €100, while the man was fined €200 and ordered to give the ISPCA an additional €200.

Mr Healy reported:

On January 17, ISPCA Inspector Lisa O’Donovan visited the woman’s property in response to a call to the ISPCA Helpline.

She seized a collie pup, approximately five months old, tied to an oil tank with no shelter [pictured above]…A vet later described the pup as “severely underweight”.

Homeowners have been advised to watch their backsides during floods after a man in the Midleton area was bitten by a rat while sitting on the toilet.

…Yesterday, Councillor Noel Collins reported the incident to Cork County Council during a Southern Area Meeting, after asking them to investigate the possibility of flushing rat poison through the sewer system.

Cllr Collins added: “I would advise homeowners to keep their toilet seats down when not in use, and to watch their posteriors.”
