Fota Wildlife Park residents cool off in the hot spell

It looks like we're certainly not the only ones feeling this heatwave.

The animals over at Fota Wildlife Park have been cooling off in the high 20s heat with the help of their keepers.

Ducks, swans, penguins, flamingos, pelicans and turtles can be seen taking to the water in an effort to cool off.

Meanwhile, Dublin SPCA has reiterated the importance of providing water and shelter to pets in the current hot spell.

It came after the charity received over 30 calls about horses tied up with no access to shade or water on one day alone.

The DSPCA also received numerous reports about dogs being left in parked cars for long periods of time.
