There have been further calls for legislation on exotic pets following the outcry caused by an incident last week with a wallaby.
A video briefly surfaced on Facebook showing acts of cruelty to the wallaby at a 30th birthday party at a hotel in Liffey Valley.
Various exotic animals are available for sale on websites in Ireland and in most cases there is no license required to own the animals.
Pet Insurance Ireland supports the idea that there should be some legislation on keeping exotic pets, especially when so many find theri way to animal sanctuaries.
