Damian Hawkins who lives in Haversham Drive, Bracknell discovered the abused ducks on Thursday, January 21.

He said he had heard a 'quacking' sound outside his house which led him to the discovery of the injured ducks.

Sandy Barlow RSPCA Inspector who is investigating the incident, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who has any information about who dumped these ducks and would urge people to contact us in complete confidence on 0300 123 8018.

“Two ducks were found in a garage area behind houses by a member of the public. On inspection he found one duck with Sellotape wrapped tightly around its legs which the member of public swiftly removed before calling us.

“Another duck’s body was also found in an alley behind garages and a live duck was found in a nearby garden.
