Animal Carcasses Found Dumped Near Thurles In Co. Tipperary.

Gardaí in Co. Tipperary are currently investigating the dumping of 15 calf carcasses, which have been found located on isolated bogland, partially covered by surface bog water.

Four of the calves are understood to have been discovered close to a popular walking trail, near Derryville, close to the village of Glengoole, Thurles; on property owned by Bord Na Móna.

Farmers are required, by law, to pay a maximum fee of between €30 and €100, depending on the age of any dead animal requiring removal by recognised knackery operators, under the Department of Agriculture’s Fallen Animal Scheme.

We understand the removal of the carcasses is being organised by Tipperary County Council, under the guidance of the Department of Agriculture and local investigating Gardaí.
