Drunk seagull threw up on a firefighter rescuing it from a rooftop

07 Juillet, 2018, 14:25 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

Staff at the RSPCA have been left concerned after a string of call-outs and are concerned that the birds have been gaining access to waste products from a local brewery or alcohol producer.

The charity has been called out to Seaton, Colyton, Exmouth, Sidmouth, and Budleigh Salterton and at the weekend Lyme Regis.

"We took some video of one of the birds who is staggering around and losing his balance just like a person would if they'd had too much to drink".

The charity is urging local breweries, distilleries and alcohol producers to check that their waste is secure and can not be accessed by wildlife or birds.

"We have had a number of these come through over the last couple of weeks".

RSPCA experts fear the gulls coming in to its rescue centres for treatment may have had access to brewery waste, which is sometimes used as compost.

Mr Narongsak said discussions regarding the lowest risk rescue attempts were ongoing, but acknowledged that time was against them. The Thai government said Musk's team could help the rescue operation with location tracking, water pumping or battery power.

The RSPCA centre at West Hatch near Taunton, Somerset, has had almost 30 drunken birds "reeking of alcohol" in two weeks.

"At first, the birds look like they have botulism (an illness caused by bacteria) but then, after vomiting, most seem to recover".

"Drunk" gulls who appear disoriented, confused and struggle to stand have been picked up along the south coast.

One theory is that the seagulls were drinking beer left in plastic cups that revelers left lying around on the beach the night before.

"Sadly, a few of the birds have died but majority have made good recoveries and have been released after a few days in our care".

Anyone with concerns for the welfare of a bird or animal can contact the RSPCA's 24-hour helpline on 0300 1234 999 for advice or assistance.
