*Torn Osophaegus


Great Park Rubery Birmingham


Blythe Water Knowle

*The osophaegus is a thin tube that carries food from the mouth to the gizzard of the bird.

Unfortunately for these two cygnets the osophaegus was torn by attempted removal of line and hook, by well meaning people. The effect as can be seen now means the food is now spilling out. The damage to the osophaegus was too great to repair. This condemned these two young cygnets to death.

IMPORTANT...... IF YOU FEEL ANY RESISTANCE IF ATTEMPTING TO REMOVE LINE - PLEASE STOP AND CALL US.
