Big Bird Saves Seagull from Power Lines

Quote:

A seagull caught in power lines near the Lesner Bridge in Virginia Beach, Virginia for more than 24 hours was finally rescued Thursday morning.

Virginia Dominion Power used a helicopter to free the bird, and it was taken to the Virginia Beach SPCA where it will be treated for its injuries.

WAVY received a call from the Virginia Beach SPCA about the bird, and a WAVY viewer called and said the bird had been there since Tuesday.

"A lot of the times the birds do not see the black line itself when they are flying, and if the wind catches them, he probably flew directly into the power line itself and wrapped his wing," said Rose Chandler, a volunteer with the VB SPCA.

Chandler works to rehabilitate migratory birds.

Re: Big Bird Saves Seagull from Power Lines

awesome!!

it amazes me that in part of this country people are willing to spend a little cash to save a bird...while in other parts of the same country this is going on and people are trying to spend cash to kill wildlife.

Re: Big Bird Saves Seagull from Power Lines

There are many things that you can do with an helicopter instead of firing missiles, this is definitely one of them and it helps me to realize that humans don't suck that much.
