Firefighters Rescued A Gull Stuck In Nets In Cardiff City Centre

After being entangled in netting between a Greggs, a gym, and a cocktail bar, a gull was rescued.
A member of the public called the RSPCA last week after noticing the bird’s distress on Park Place in Cardiff. RSPCA inspector Sophie Daniels attended, and firefighters from South Wales Fire and Rescue Service used ladders to reach the gull and bring him to safety.
The stranded gull was recovered from Cardiff city centre, where it was wedged between a Greggs, a bar, and a gym (RSPCA/PA).
The bird was taken to a veterinary facility for evaluation and is now being cared for at a specialised animal rescue centre in Herefordshire, where it will be released back into the wild.
“This gull was spotted on netting between Greggs, a health club, and a cocktail bar – so we’re not sure if he fancied a workout, a night out, or a snack,” Inspector Daniels said.
“But, in all seriousness, the poor bird was in a dreadful tangle, and we had to summon the help of our Whitchurch fire station colleagues.”
“It’s yet another example of what we can achieve as a group for animal welfare.”
The gull is currently undergoing rehabilitation before being reintroduced into the wild (RSPCA/PA).
“Thankfully, they were able to get him down, and following a vet examination, we moved the gull to a specialised recovery center in Herefordshire for continued rehabilitation.”
