Glue Trap Horror

Rescue - 24th June, 2022

Rescue

Although the process is well underway to ban glue traps in the UK, we are still seeing numerous animals fall victim to these disgraceful contraptions! This female sparrow arrived, covered from neck to tail in the sticky substance.

Rehabilitation

It took our team A LOT of time to remove the bulk of the glue and the paper it was stuck to. Even then, it still took numerous treatments, over several days, to finally get her feathers clean.

Release

We are very happy to say that this very lucky bird is is now free once more, flying in the wild!
