A slight change of plan for this week’s Cute Critter Friday. Pictured above is a poor, unfortunate, and very lucky seagull. For some reason, he fell into a vat of chicken tikka masala, where the curry turned its feathers bright orange! And a very nice shade too, I don’t mind saying. Luckily, the gull was rescued, and cleaned up with washing up liquid. The only problem was the liquid couldn’t get rid of the smell. Those who helped to clean up the gull said that he smelled amazing!

The full story can be found on the BBC News website.

  1. Glad they didn’t eat the seagull, being that it smelled like chicken (tikki masala).

  2. Perhaps when I read the full story it will become clear, but my first question is… How would a seagull come to be in a vat of chicken tikka masala?! 😀

    1. That was my very first thought, Elaine… it must have gotten inside somehow. Surely there wouldn’t be a full vat of chicken tikka masala outside, would there?

    1. Quite a few people, I’d say, Prenin – unless they decided to use the tikka masala anyway!
