Release of Bray the cormorant by the GSPCA in sunny Guernsey

Submitted by GSPCA on 16:02, 22nd May, 2013 | 0

Last night one of the Shelter volunteer wardens rescued a cormorant from St Sampsons that was trapped in a garden.

After a night of TLC and plenty of fish we are pleased to announce that we were able to release him this afternoon in a very sunny St Peter Port spot.

After being trapped behind a fence thankfully there were no injuries or health issues which meant he was able to go back to the wild where he belongs.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'When he came in last night even though he had been trapped for some time he was very healthy.'

On the 8th February this year the GSPCA received a Razorbill from Alderney which had been affected by crude oil.

Staff at Alderney Animal Welfare had cared for the bird and done a wonderful job removing the crude oil from the its feathers after being found on the coast of Alderney. If it hadn't been for their staff this bird would certainly have perished.

Submitted by GSPCA on 20:12, 16th May, 2013 | 0

Today the GSPCA received another oiled bird.  This time a Gull was rescued from Chouet and brought into the Animal Shelter.

Although it is not thought to be the PIB (polyisobutene) that has killed thousands of see birds along the south coast of England the GSPCA are on high alert in case of any outbreak.

You may remember only a number of weeks ago an oiled bird was found dead in Alderney due to PIB.  Here is some simple advice on what to do if you find sea life affected by this or any oiled substance -

After the recent news of a car apparently intentionally running over some ducklings this week we would like to remind everyone of the GSPCA cruelty complaint procedure.

With Spring comes many more animals out and about from hedgehogs coming out of hibernation to pet cats enjoying the warmth of the sunshine, ducks with their ducklings to dog walkers making the most of the nice weather. 


How cute is this stray baby ferret that was found cold and very weak?

Submitted by GSPCA on 13:58, 16th May, 2013 | 0

Earlier this week late on Tuesday evening a very kind gentleman spotted this little fella at the side of the road in the St Saviours area.

Andrea as staff have named him at only just over a month isn't even old enough to be away from his mother and is needing bottle feeding by Shelter staff at the GSPCA.

Andrea arrived late in the evening and GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne accepted the young ferret who was very cold, weak and quiet.

A pen was quickly set up with additional heating and Andrea thankfully pulled through the first night well.
