According to BCN/The Appeal this morning: several birds have been spotted around the Bay Area with torturous collars fashioned from cut Budweiser cans around their necks. All jokes about jewelry made from recycled materials aside, someone out there has a sick attitude towards sea gulls. Two local wildlife organizations, WildRescue in Monterey and International Bird Rescue in Fairfield, are asking for any information or sightings of the collared birds so they can track them down and help them out.
The first Budweiser bird was spotted back in September and thought to be an isolated incident. Now with multiple sightings reported around Alcatraz and Fisherman's Wharf, two anonymous donors are each offering a $1,000 reward for the arrest of the evil bird whisperer(s).
