Before I read the article I thought that this was happening because of the trash that we leave at the beaches…instead I read that the collars are put on by people…what kind of people would do this? Sick!
Photos and video on the links below..I hope they find and prosecute whoever is doing this! Perhaps put a beer can collar around their neck!
Check out the video
Cut beer cans placed around seagulls' necks
Why would anyone slap cut beer cans around the necks of seagulls? A wildlife group made aware of the incidents isn't certain but it calls it torture and is fighting back with a $2,000 bounty.
Instead of attempting to capture the birds, which can make them more wary and harder to catch, sightings should be reported immediately to a dedicated paging service 831-429-2323 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. via Wildrescue.org
