Cruelty to Ducks

One of our members was walking around Cyfarthfa Park Lake when he spotted a small stick, sticking up between the stones of the lake attached to which was a length of Mono line attached to a piece of sprung steel in an S shape.   This was baited with bread and obviously designed to be swallowed by a duck and then the perpertrator just pulled the line in and could take the duck.    We (the Association) have reported, and given the offending instrument to the Park Warden who in turn is informing the relevant authorities including the Wild Life Crime Officer for the area.    If members see anything like this in the future please take the offending instrument to the Museum for the staff to pass on to the Park Warden.
