Hastings area RSPCA center slams cruel spikes after bird is killed

A spokesperson for Mallydams said: “The poor adult starling unfortunately fell victim to some bird prevention spikes on top of a building. Sadly it was impaled on a spike, which went straight through.

“Our lovely inspector Zoe had to get help from the fire service who gently cut the spike away as they could not remove it from the starling.

“Unfortunately we simply cannot save all wildlife and it really saddens us when we can’t do anything to help.

“We want to raise awareness of the harm these bird spikes can cause to wildlife.”

RSPCA Mallydams Wood celebrated its 60th anniversary last year and has helped countless animals and birds during that time.
