Baby seagull spray-painted red by cruel vandals

  • The young herring-gull was sprayed all over with red paint by cruel yobs
  • The bird was taken in by Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary in North Yorkshire
  • 'Poppy' will not be live among other gulls as she will be victim of bullying 
  • Wildlife experts call the act ‘disgusting’ and say bird’s feathers are ruined - she will need specialist care for years

A young herring-gull will need specialist care for years after cruel vandals attacked her with spray paint. The bird was taken in by Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary, North Yorkshire, after she was found covered in thick red paint.

The baby gull, who rescuers have named Poppy due to her new colour, is only a few months old and now faces a couple of flightless years while waiting for the damaged feathers to fall out.

'She is only a baby and so she is unable to fly at the moment which means she is fairly easy to get hold of,' Alexandra Farmer, who runs the sanctuary, said. 'It looks like the paint that is used on the road. I think two people must have painted her because they have lifted her wings to paint underneath. One person would have held her and the other would have painted. She won’t be able to fly now because the paint has made the feathers rock hard and stiff. She keeps looking at her feet because they are so red but there is no way to wash it off.

'She's going to need a lot of TLC. The paint is very fumy and I've had to keep her in a well aerated room. She smelt terrible when she was found and that amount of fumes would make breathing quite difficult. They have painted her face and so I am taking her to the vet to make sure she didn’t breathe too much of it in.’

'The bird isn't suitable for the wild and is not suitable to be with her own kind. The feathers are ruined and because she is a sea bird she needs to be well oiled which means she is no longer waterproof. People need to know the dangers. It's just disgusting that people can do this.'

POLICE WILL BE WORKING WITH THE RSPCA TO FIND OUT WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE.

ANYONE WHO HAS ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE INCIDENT OR KNOWS WHO IS RESPONSIBLE SHOULD CONTACT NORTH YORKSHIRE POLICE ON 101.

"You don’t owe your family affection if they are being abusive and treating you poorly. I know that it’s so difficult not to feel guilty for holding back that love. I know that there are people who will tell you that you should just grin and bear it because they’re family. People who will shame you for the way you feel. People who will try to convince you that wanting to take care of yourself in this way is selfish and unjustified. But the truth is that it’s not your responsibility to be kind or loving to people who have consistently hurt and mistreated you — especially when these people continue to disregard your feelings, ignore your boundaries, and refuse to take responsibility for their behavior. Just because the person hurting you is family doesn’t make them an exception.

Choosing not to be affectionate with family who have abused or mistreated you doesn’t make you a bad person. It isn’t selfish or disrespectful. It’s a form of self-care. It’s about you honoring your feelings and holding people accountable for their abuse. It’s about you standing up for yourself and your needs. It’s about you making your mental health a priority. So if getting distance from certain family members is what you need right now, or permanently, then you have every right to withhold your love and leave. You don’t have to sacrifice yourself for the sake of maintaining a relationship. And you don’t ever have to apologize for creating a safer space for yourself."

Who knew chickens could be so cool? The colorful comb (top part) and wattle (bottom part) of the Green Junglefowl (Gallus varius) is so gorgeous! Actually, the bird isn’t exactly a chicken - it’s in the pheasant family. That explains it.You’ll find Green Junglefowl in pairs/groups of two to five in the wild led by a dominant male who leads the pack, so to speak. At night he’ll lead the rest of his troop back into the cover of the forest where the birds nest in bamboo stands at 15–20 feet above the forest floor.

The Green Junglefowl, Gallus varius also known as Javan Junglefowl, Forktail or Green Javanese Junglefowl is a medium-sized, up to 75 cm long, bird in the pheasant family Phasianidae. Recent molecular work (Kimball et al., Barrowclough) has revealed that Junglefowl and Pheasants are not monophyletic.

The two most basic rules of keeping rats are the two most common rules I see broken.

DO NOT KEEP RATS ALONE, ALWAYS KEEP THEM IN PAIRS OR GROUPS

It is only ever acceptable to keep a rat alone if it is highly rat aggressive and cannot be introduced to other rats OR if it is an elderly rat whose cagemate has passed on and you don’t want to keep any more rats.

DO NOT KEEP RATS IN TANKS, ALWAYS KEEP THEM IN CAGES

It is only ever acceptable to keep a rat in a tank if it is a nursing mom (even then, I’d still recommend you find a single level cage with narrow bar spacing).

Seriously, it’s not hard, do your research before you buy animals, you are responsible for their welfare, it is your job to provide them with the best possible life, they do not exist purely to make you happy. They are not a decoration. They are living, breathing, intelligent creatures who experience a wide range of emotions and they are VERY capable of feeling boredom. If you cramp one rat into a tank with nothing but a bed and a bowl of food they are going to have a very miserable and boring life. No excuses, if you can’t provide your rats with proper care, don’t get rats.

And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America

Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.

Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.

Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.

But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?

Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.

Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crook is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!

OKAY SO I KNEW THAT TECHNICALLY IN AMERICA THAT YOU PAY FOR HEALTHCARE BUT LIKE THE IDEA IS SO BIZARRE TO ME THAT I’D NEVER CONSIDERED THAT YOU’D GET… A BILL?????? FOR BEING…. ILL?????????? I LITERALLY DON’T

how can anaesthetic cost that much??

how is this legal??

WHAT? And I thought having to pay £7 ($11.55) for stronger prescription allergy meds instead of £4 ($6.60) for the less effective store-brand ones was ridiculous.

You have to pay for the ambulance!?

OK, I’m shocked by the prices, but all of the people from other countries who are just shocked that there ARE prices just make me so so sad.

This is so screwed up.

This is why I would never live in America…..someone is getting seriously rich off this shit..Thank fuck for the NHS!

What the fuck, America? Damn, guys, your government is evil, seriously
