RSPCA NSW appealing for witnesses to duck killing

RSPCA NSW is appealing for witnesses to an incident in North Narrabeen on Tuesday, 13 October where a duck was attacked and killed.

Three teenagers were seen capturing the duck and then attacking and killing it, leaving the body on the pathway. The incident took place around midday on Pelican Path, a public pathway between Lake Park Rd and the Ocean Street Bridge in North Narrabeen.

“This is a distressing and deliberate act of animal cruelty and we urge anyone with information to come forward,” said RSPCA NSW Chief Inspector David O’Shannessy.

“An incident such as this which results in the death of an animal amounts to an act of aggravated animal cruelty and offenders face a maximum penalty of $22,000 and/or two years in jail.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact RSPCA NSW on (02) 9770 7555 or the Police.
