Making new friends in La Linea
AN initiative in Gibraltar to track the migratory habits of the Griffon vulture wasn’t as successful as an individual in La Linea who found an exhausted one by the sea front.
Initially, transferring it to a local garage to feed dog food, it attracted quite a large crowd as well as a couple of dogs who had sniffed out the food.
The bird and one of the dogs appeared to be quite comfortable to be in each other’s company until sense prevailed and the authorities were alerted so it could be taken to the local Endangered Species Recovery Centre (CREAS) to be looked after.
