A number of emergency services have pleaded with the public not to build bonfires this Halloween.
The Dublin Society for the Protection of Animals is pleading with people stacking bonfires to leave wood they find by fields alone for fear of endangering horses.
DSPCA Spokeswoman, Gillian Bird said owners leave wooden pallets by the edges of fields so their animals don’t escape.
She said: “Pallets stuffed in the hedges are keeping horses in. If it’s taken, the horses are going to escape and run the risk of getting hit by cars. We’ve had cases in the past.
“People who own horses put a huge amount of work into keeping them safe. That’s the big thing we’re pushing. Obviously bonfires are illegal but leave the wood in the bushes alone.”
The society has this advice for keeping pets safe:
•Pets pick up on owner’s anxiety so stay calm when fireworks and bangers go off
•The number of strays increases at Halloween so ensure pets are micro-chipped
•If it’s too late to have them chipped, make sure their collar is on at all times
•Keep pets inside at all times when off the leash
The Society has received no reports of animal cruelty over the weekend so far.
