DSPCA Urges Members Of The Public Not To Buy Ducklings Online

The DSPCA is urging the public not to buy ducklings online, and to report the sellers urgently.

It's issued the warning after adverts were posted online, offering the animals for €5 each.

The charity says anyone who is offered one of the ducklings should contact Gardai immediately.

Spokesperson Gillian Bird says a family home is not an appropriate place to raise them without a lot of preparation.
