RIP Major the GSPCA much loved cockerel

Submitted by Steve on 15:46, 22nd May, 2019 | 0

Many visitors over recent years will know the friendly and familiar face of Major the cockerel.

Major turned up at the GSPCA with an elderly hen  a few years ago.  It was unclear if they were strays, just escaped from a near by farm or home or if they had been dumped at the GSPCA.

Sadly Majors wife was very elderly and wasn’t with us long, but for the last few years Major has strutted his stuff around the GSPCA and made many friends.

Many visitors would find him following them around and he loved many of the staff and volunteers that fed and cared for him.
