Injured Cormorant

Cormorant saved from traffic 1 August 5th, 2014 — This injured cormorant was saved from being run over on the Burrard Street Bridge by a pedestrian, Jean, who ran out into traffic, picked it up, and carried it to the sidewalk. There was much discussion of what to do with the bird amongst passers by. Phone calls were made to the SPCA and Wildlife Rescue but being late in the day everything was closed. Jean decided to carry the bird, which really seemed to be just stunned, probably from flying into a pillar, to the south end of the bridge where it could be set free in a safe place far from the road and maybe recover. Jean found a spot for the bird on the grass of a small park next to the bridge. Once released it immediately flew over to Burrard Street and landed in the middle of traffic. Cars stopped as it hopped to the median. We did our best. What ever will be will be.
