Four ducklings found dumped in a box in Barnet

Four ducklings have been rescued by the RSPCA after being found dumped in a box in King George’s Fields in Barnet by a member of the public.

She said: “The ducklings all seem quite healthy and tame, although one is smaller than the others. Given they were in a closed cardboard box we are investigating it as an abandonment and are looking for information about where they came from.

“It would have been a terrifying experience for the poor ducklings and anything could have happened to them in a busy park. We are very grateful that someone found them and took them home to safety until we could collect them.

“If anyone has any information, please contact our inspectorate line on 0300 123 8018 quoting incident number 01233060.”

The ducklings, who have been named Duck, Duck, Duck and Goose by the RSPCA, are now at South Essex Wildlife Hospital from where they will be rehomed.
