The RSPCA has issued a warning about wildlife getting stuck in netting - with new figures showing that the charity rescued more than a thousand tangled animals last year.
Photos released show how easily animals can get tangled in sports or garden netting - which can result in fatal injuries.
In total, 1,032 animals were rescued from netting by RSPCA officers in 2016.
The number of netting rescues RSPCA officers carry out increases drastically in the peak of summer. Last year in July, 198 animals were rescued after getting tangled in netting - compared to 20 in January.
From May to July last year, when the weather was warmer, 429 animals were rescued from netting - approximately five a day.
Sports netting, such as football and tennis netting, and pond and fruit netting are the main culprits which wildlife are rescued from.
