Walking on the beach today towards springmaid pier and I notice a seagull that was acting weird. As I got closer I realized its right wing was practically torn from its body. Being the bird watcher/lover that I am I couldn't just leave it there as I was sure some predator would have gotten it. So I googled bird rescuers in S.C. Luckily there was one listed in N.M.B. So I called the number and was able to meet the lady with the gull. She assured me that although the gull would probably lose its wing she would keep it in an enclosure that she maintains. She said that it's on the beach and the gull would have its feet in the sand. So I'm sure that a few people will think I'm nuts for doing this I feel pretty good that the gull will end up being ok.

Hello all thanks for the kind comments. I wanted to post an update I texted the lady that I gave the gull to. She told me that the wing is taped up and he's doing good but the wing is going to have to be removed next week. Thanks again.
