ANIMAL LOVER Wayne Norville, who has performed some of the most heroic rescues of creatures from open wells, is appealing to authorities to do something about the problem.

He is concerned about the number of exposed and eroding wells that leave people and animals at risk.

The chief inspector with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) took the WEEKEND NATION on a tour of some of the more dangerous pits from which he has freed trapped animals.

One well where Norville has carried out three dog rescues – the last being in April – is located at the corner of Parade Road at Bush Hall, St Michael. Captivated viewers watched on Norville’s Facebook page as he extracted an animal from the more than 25-foot well next to an apartment building.
