Seagull with dart through neck spotted at park

WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — A seagull with a dart through its neck is surviving at a park in the agricultural city of Wenatchee, in north central Washington state.

The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society has been receiving calls about the bird at Walla Walla Point Park for two months.

The Wenatchee World reports (http://bit.ly/11LEBA8 ) the seagull is able to fly. Attempts to catch it have been unsuccessful.

The Humane Society's Jody White says catching the bird could be more dangerous if it caused the dart to move around. The dart is 4 or 5 inches long and sticks out both sides of the bird's neck.
