A pigeon had to be rescued after landing in a vat of oil in Merthyr Tydfil.
The used cold cooking oil was in an outside bin at a restaurant at Rhydycar and when the lid was taken off momentarily, the pigeon flew in and got himself into trouble.
This poor pigeon got himself into a bit of mischief, but thankfully staff at the restaurant were quick to react and managed to get the pigeon safely out otherwise he would have certainly drowned.
He was confined safely outside while I made my way over to collect him. He was completely covered in oil. He looked like one slick pigeon!
The pigeon was first taken to Merthyr Tydfil Veterinary Clinic for a vet check up, and then was taken to Gower Bird Hospital to be cleaned up and rehabilitated.
A farmer from Garnant in Carmarthenshire has been jailed for seven months for causing his dogs and other animals unnecessary suffering.
An RSPCA inspector found 34 dogs living in "shocking conditions" including schnauzers, cocker spaniels and pugs.
“Within five minutes of my arrival I was covered in head to toe in faeces and urine. I was drenched to the bone. It was unimaginable.
“The dogs were stinking because they were living in this horrific environment. There were puppies being born in faeces.
“There were also a number of sheep and a couple of pigs that had been shoved into a barn. There was no ventilation, no water or food and they were just crammed in.”
He was sentenced to five months in prison with an additional two months for breaching a previous sentence. He was also disqualified from keeping all animals for five years.

Five puppies, approximately two weeks-old, were found abandoned behind the Asda in Dowlais Top, Merthyr yesterday.
Ahead of Wales' historic quarter final match against Belgium tonight - the puppies have been named after a selection of the Welsh Euro 2016 heroes.
The three boys have been named after Bale, Allen and Williams whilst the girls are Taylor and Ramsey.
It appears that these poor puppies have just been abandoned in a box.
The five puppies appear healthy, but are so young and could have died if they had not been found. We don’t know how long they had been there.
The five puppies consist of two brindle females, two brindle males and one grey male.
RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after two kittens were dumped in a tied-up plastic bag in Porthmadog.
The two black and white kittens were discovered after their cries were heard. They were found in the plastic bag in the bin Last Sunday at 9.30am near the Harbour Masters Office in Porthmadog.
The kittens are about seven to eight weeks-old and are in good health. They have now been taken into our care and are doing well despite their awful ordeal.
It is just shocking what has happened. These kittens must have been so frightened when they were left in this bin and in a tied plastic bag.
We’re investigating this incident and we urge anyone with any information to contact us on the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence.
A home is being sought for a three-legged lurcher called Fern.
The RSPCA says Fern, who is seven years old, recently had one of her front legs amputated after she became injured in a road traffic collision - but is coping extremely well without it.
Fern is such a lovely girl. We are looking for a quiet home for her and she would be able to live with sensible older children. She is good with other dogs too.
Fern came into the RSPCA Merthyr Tydfil Clinic with a leg injury and sadly on veterinary advice her leg was removed.
But she is coping wonderfully and she had her stitches out the other day.
She is still recovering however, and every now and again she will let out a little cry, bless her. But she is walking about just fine and loves spending her time down in our paddock area
A cat has been left abandoned in a pet carrier outside a Cardiff office building.
The cat was found at 6.55am on Monday outside the main gate of Treglown Court, Dowlais Road in a pet carrier that had a black bin bag around it.
....She has severe alopecia and sores over most of her body. She didn’t have a collar or microchip, so we can’t identify her owner. It appears that this cat has been abandoned and someone has just dumped her alone in the cold. We don’t know how long she could have been there on her own. She is really shy
RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after an injured pony was found in a ‘terrible’ state, thin, injured and struggling to walk near Parc Cwm Darran in Bargoed.
The pony was found by a dog walker.
The pony is undergoing veterinary treatment.
She is extremely thin and her condition is very serious.
She has been made comfortable but she is not in a good way. She isn’t microchipped so we can’t identify her owner. We don’t know where she has come from.
We want to hear from anyone who recognises her and knows who she belongs to. She is very sweet.”
Anyone who may have information about this pony should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
