seagull rescued in Highbridge after jam is mistaken for blood
team of Burnham-On-Sea wildlife carers had an unusual call-out this
week when they were called by a member of the public to help a seagull.
gull appeared to be covered in blood, said a concerned member of
the public in a call to local animal welfare charity Secret World
when the gull was brought back to Secret World in East Huntspill
by the team, to their amusement and relief they discovered the red
substance was in fact strawberry jam not blood!
Hannay at Secret World Wildlife Rescue told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"Jammy, as he's known to Secret World staff, was given a thorough
wash by our dedicated animal carers and will be released soon."
2017 Secret World treated 503 gulls suffering from various illnesses
and injuries. Secret World provides a 365-days a year service to
rescue sick, injured or orphaned wildlife.
