ManxSPCA plea for abandoned terrapins

Reptiles being left in ponds to die

A plea for abandoned terrapins from the ManxSPCA.

The charity is warning a number of the creatures are left in local ponds to 'die a slow death as non-natives in our Manx environment.'

People are being encouraged to take any of the unwanted animals to Ard Jerkyll to be housed and rehomed.

If anyone would like to rehome a terrapin they can contact the charity on 851 672 or email jane.gregory@manxspca.com.
