Wyszków Śląski. The stork needed help. She was choking on the plastic bag
According to information provided by Tomasz Wachowiak, head of the volunteer fire brigade of Wyszków Śląski, it appears that the services were notified by one of the residents. – The village chief informed us that there is a stork in the nest and that he is suffocating with a plastic bag. We went to the site, but it was necessary to support the second unit, because our car does not have a ladder and the nest was on a power pole at a height of 10 meters-he says.
Due to the situation, it was also necessary to involve the energy emergency service. In order for the firefighters to help the animal safely, it was necessary to turn off the electricity. – The idea was to slowly climb the ladder near the nest, gently grab the stork and try to pull the sack out. Two problems were feared. There were also young storks in the nest and they could fall. Or our victim could fly away – says the director in an interview with TVN24.
The whole event ended well: the bird flew away when it saw the firefighters approaching, but when it took off, the pouch flew off its beak. – It’s good that it ended up like this. Such interventions are not easy – said Wachowiak.
Everyone can help animals that need our care
Friends of the volunteer firefighters from Kołczewo (West Pomeranian Voivodeship) also attended on Saturday. In Sierosław, a stork got entangled in the reeds, probably while hunting frogs. The bird was unable to leave the water tank alone. Firefighters reported that the bird must have struggled in the water for a long time. Thanks to the quick intervention, the bird quickly returned to the ground.
