Seagull with dart in neck surviving in Wenatchee

The Associated Press

WENATCHEE — A seagull with a dart through its neck is surviving at a park in Wenatchee.

The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society has been receiving calls about the bird at Walla Walla Point Park for two months.

The Wenatchee World reports it’s able to fly. Attempts to catch it have been unsuccessful.

The Humane Society’s Jody White says catching the gull could be dangerous for the bird if it caused the dart to move around. The dart is 4 or 5 inches long and sticks out both sides of the bird’s neck.
