Two disemboweled Canada geese have been found in Cardiff, with RSPCA Cymru appealing for information linked to the horrific discovery.
A member of the public found the birds on 22 March, in woodland behind Fir Avenue in the Fairwater area of the city.
The geese were hanging from separate trees, and had been paunched, with all potentially-edible meat cut away. There was a large yellow hazardous waste sack also present, which contained feathers.
RSPCA Cymru is urging anyone who may have information related to this incident, and the geese’s death, to come forward and contact the charity’s inspectorate appeal line.
Simon Evans, RSPCA inspector, said: “This was a shocking discovery in the Fairwater area, with these two Canada geese disemboweled and left hanging from two woodland trees.
“A yellow hazardous waste back was also at the site, which may have been used to transport the geese. “We’re calling on anyone who may have information about this incident to come forward. Our inspectorate appeal line can be reached on 0300 123 8018, with calls treated in confidence.
“RSPCA Cymru is eager to find out how these birds came to be in such a shocking state, and why wildlife has been treated in this way.”
