Fishing line takes another life

On Tuesday a call was made into the SPCA Wildlife line to help an injured seagull on the beach off of Shore Drive. As one of the wildlife volunteers, I was able to immediately respond to the call. I did not know many details until almost on site, but knew it was a suspected wing injury. Right before arriving I was informed that the bird was in the water, but not too far from shore. The caller who was keeping an eye on the bird met me in the parking lot. She pointed me in the right direction and returned to the beach while I grabbed my rescue equipment.
