Last week a very large gold fish was rescued from a hungry gull.

The gold fish was rescued near Gibauderie and despite his injuries is doing well at the GSPCA.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said “We are asked to help all sorts of animals but it is rare we are asked to help a goldfish abandoned in a bucket being attacked by a gull.”

“We have named him Captain Birdseye and despite his injuries he is doing well and if we don’t find his owners in the next 3 weeks we will be looking to find him a home.”

On Saturday a member of the GSPCA were called out to rescue two turtles and two goldfish which were found outside in a very dirty tank.

When Geoff George Animal Collection Officer rescued the fish and turtles he had to quickly try and find a location with appropriate tanks to help temporarily house them whilst facilities were arranged at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

Thankfully staff at the Friquet Garden Centre in Castel offered their services where all four were transported to place them in suitable conditions.
