tackle warning from beach warden after sea bird is injured
have been warned not to discard unwanted fishing tackle in the
sea or on local beaches.
beachwarden Dave Furber made the plea on Thursday after he and
a member of the public had to cut free a seagull that had become
tangled up in fishing lines and hooks.
explained: "The bird was in a poor state, tangled up in the
fishing tackle, but we managed to free it without any injury.
It serves as a usual reminder to local and visiting anglers about
the potential danger to people and animals of leaving fishing
also like to thank the beach walker, Catherine Taylor Grom, who
noticed the bird and helped free it."
