    Seagull rescued from power lines by helicopter recuperates with Spaghettios, hot dogs

    Seagull rescued by helicopter - amazing video shows heroic feat. (Mirror, with rescue video)
    There have been many daring rescues by helicopter but this may be the first time a seagull has been plucked to safety by a chopper.

    The seagull is now being nursed back to health after being stuck in power lines for 24 hours in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
    ---
    Virginia Dominion Power used a helicopter to free the bird, and it was taken to the local animal rescue.
    ---
    Some say a helicopter rescue is above and beyond the call of duty for a single seagull but the bird rescuers don't agree.

    Volunteer Rose Chandler said: "Somebody has to do it, and we can't just leave it up there defenseless and powerless and suffering."

    Rescuing one animal may not change the world, but for that one animal their world is changed forever! -Unknown
