The veterinarians in England named the smelly, stranded seagull Vinny, inspired by Vindaloo curry
Drivers in England pulled over to rescue what appeared to be a glamorous, golden-orange bird stranded on the side of the highway — but when veterinarians took a closer look, it was anything but.
“When they called to say they had picked up an orange bird, we had no idea what to expect – and would never have guessed at this,” read a Facebook post from the Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital.
It turned out to be a wretched-smelling, curry-coated seagull.
“It was all over his feathers, preventing him from flying properly,” read the post.
“We have no idea how he got into this predicament but thankfully, apart from the vibrant colour and pungent smell, he was healthy.”
Despite flailing his wings and soaking staff members with “curry water,” the team scrubbed down the gull and even named him Vinny, inspired by Vindaloo curry.
Now, Vinny is all cleaned up and ready to find another vat of curry to nosedive into.
