Seagull found with a face mask wrapped around its legs

Somebody should inform this sea gull about how to properly wear a face mask. Animal rescuers in Britain had to help rescue a seagull in Chelmsford, Essex, after witnesses at a nearby business reported the gull seemed unable to move after they spotted it having difficulty walking earlier in the week. The RSPCA responder found the bird had a disposable COVID-19 face mask tangled around both its legs. The bird was taken to South Essex Wildlife Hospital to have the mask removed, and the bird is being kept there as it recovers. Rescuers say the incident should serve as a reminder to members of the public to properly dispose of their face masks due to the potential hazard to wildlife.
