Roscommon County Council have reported three separate incidents of illegal animal dumping in Roscommon.
The documents obtained by Shannonside FM reveal that three separate animal dumping’s have taken place in bogs and waste ground in the county. The animals dumped include a pony and sheep.
The disposal of livestock must be carried out by a knackery and information and tags of the beast be recorded officially as well as cause of death.
Some farmers do not bring dead livestock to knackeries as there are fee's assoicated with the disposal of the animal.
