CONCERNS have been raised about birds getting trapped in a property above Domino’s in Ross-on-Wye.

An RSPCA officer has rescued several trapped pigeons at this location over the last few weeks. The charity is now trying to address the issue with the private landlord of the property, who is not linked with Domino’s Pizza, by providing advice and guidance.

An RSPCA spokesperson said: “Wild birds, including pigeons, regularly get trapped. These pigeons had got into a window which was ajar on the top of a new roof space. An RSPCA inspector released some of the birds unharmed.”

According to information obtained via a 2019 freedom of information request, the property at 33 Gloucester Road above Domino’s Pizza has previously been served two section 215 notices by the council. These notices are served on land that is judged to be having a negative effect on the local area.


A spokesperson for the animal welfare team at Herefordshire Council said: “Following a complaint about birds trapped in a property we contacted the owner the same day.

“We understand the RSPCA has attended and the situation is now resolved.”
