Baby seagull spray-painted red by cruel vandals

  • The young herring-gull was sprayed all over with red paint by cruel yobs
  • The bird was taken in by Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary in North Yorkshire
  • 'Poppy' will not be live among other gulls as she will be victim of bullying 
  • Wildlife experts call the act ‘disgusting’ and say bird’s feathers are ruined - she will need specialist care for years

A young herring-gull will need specialist care for years after cruel vandals attacked her with spray paint. The bird was taken in by Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary, North Yorkshire, after she was found covered in thick red paint.

The baby gull, who rescuers have named Poppy due to her new colour, is only a few months old and now faces a couple of flightless years while waiting for the damaged feathers to fall out.

'She is only a baby and so she is unable to fly at the moment which means she is fairly easy to get hold of,' Alexandra Farmer, who runs the sanctuary, said. 'It looks like the paint that is used on the road. I think two people must have painted her because they have lifted her wings to paint underneath. One person would have held her and the other would have painted. She won’t be able to fly now because the paint has made the feathers rock hard and stiff. She keeps looking at her feet because they are so red but there is no way to wash it off.

'She's going to need a lot of TLC. The paint is very fumy and I've had to keep her in a well aerated room. She smelt terrible when she was found and that amount of fumes would make breathing quite difficult. They have painted her face and so I am taking her to the vet to make sure she didn’t breathe too much of it in.’

'The bird isn't suitable for the wild and is not suitable to be with her own kind. The feathers are ruined and because she is a sea bird she needs to be well oiled which means she is no longer waterproof. People need to know the dangers. It's just disgusting that people can do this.'

POLICE WILL BE WORKING WITH THE RSPCA TO FIND OUT WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE.

ANYONE WHO HAS ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE INCIDENT OR KNOWS WHO IS RESPONSIBLE SHOULD CONTACT NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE ON 101.

The delightfully creative Daily Bird Beast has put out the call for guest submissions, so I doodled up a creaturely Sunbittern. Beastly bird-monsters? No need to ask me twice.
Sunbitterns are pretty rad birds — when startled, they exhibit a threat display that makes them resemble enormous owl-eyed moths.

Guest Birdbeast #4—a SUNBITTERN BEAST!!! More cool birds I wish had occurred to me. With bonus behavior factoid—excellent!

People putting down that date rape drug identifier nail polish because they feel it makes it seem like women have to prevent themselves from being assaulted instead of putting the blame on men are idiots. The whole point of it is that we cant control what a guy may or may not do and there’s no harm in being careful.
It’s like saying you shouldnt carry mace or feel like you need to defend yourself while walking at night because it’s not your responsibility to protect yourself. There are still people out there who could assault you no matter how much you believe that women shouldn’t have to protect themselves against rape, men shouldn’t rape.

If you struggle with self-care and see this, stop what you’re doing
