Another rescued Mediterranean Shag

In the early afternoon today we received a call, that a Mediterranean Shag (Phalacrocorax aristotelis desmarestii) has been caught in the fishing net by Pacug. Ana Hace from Morigenos and Gorazd Lazar, our long time colleague and friend from Aquarium Piran and a local fisherman, responded to the call. The shag’s wing and legs were badly entangled. After some twisting around it also entangled its head a bit. Luckily, it was rescued without injuries. We hope it’ll stay away from the nets after this experience.
