I'll bet if you went back there you'll find him in the same spot, he probably can't free himself.

If only people would realise the hazard that rubbish can pose for wildlife.

I watched a Canada goose hobble around on a bad foot that was wrapped up in fishing line. It's leg was was completely cut to the bone, just flopping around all gross/swollen, nobody could get close enough to catch it, I called some local wildlife rescue center's and they all said, if you can catch it, you can bring it in. Eventually it's leg fell off, but I'm gessing the wound was infected and the bird didn't survive the winter, cause I haven't seen it back at the lake for about a year... If that Cormerant doesn't get help, or manage to free itself from the line, it will probly starve to death.

He will probably break loose from that hook sooner or later. Looks like it's not set too deep. I think the guy who left it there ought to be whipped with his pole though, until it breaks.
