ISPCA investigates 'NekNomination' with live goldfish

The ISPCA says it's investigating some "Neknomination" videos of people swallowing live goldfish.

The animal welfare charity has issued a statement saying eating live creatures is a criminal offence under Animal Welfare laws and could potentially lead to prosecution.

Chief Inspector with the ISPCA Conor Dowling has slammed the videos, saying eating any live animal and posting it on a social media site is not funny.
