Gillian Bird of the DSPCA joined Rebecca and Brendan on the Big Breakfast this morning to chat about the strange places that animals have gotten stuck.
She mentioned that birds are the worst for getting stuck and tend to get stuck in the roofs and lighting fixtures of new buildings because they are drawn to the bright lights.
Cats also came up in the conversation but she said that cats tend to get stuck in the basements of Georgian buildings in Dublin and typically cats are difficult to get out of these situations.
When asked if they use drones, Gillian said they use drones quite often but haven't used a sausage tied to it. This is in the wake of a rescue of a dog in the UK over the weekend in which a drone with a sausage tied to it was used to save a dog in distress.
We couldn’t agree more so make sure you have a plan in place for your pet if & when you go back to work. They’ve had you around with them 24/7 now it’s time to make sure they have someone around for them ♥️🐾 #petsarefamily #COVID https://t.co/LNrdpoZUdF
