Police release cormorant from fishing line and hook


Local Police officers rescued a cormorant that had become entangled in fishing line with a hook in its mouth off the playa del Tango rocks in Javea.

Officers were carrying out surveillance work when they spotted the struggling bird.

Together with staff from Minina Canina vets, they untangled the cormorant from the fishing line and removed the hook from its mouth before setting it free.

Fishermen are encouraged to be careful with their fishing gear to protect wildlife from serious injury.
