With the extreme weather the GSPCA are seeing a very rough start for the wildlife of Guernsey.

Last night Rupert an oiled guillemot was rescued at Fort Grey and the team are braced for more as the gale force weather continues.

Often during the winter months with the high winds and stormy weather makes it difficult for wild animals and birds to feed and rest.

Also with the high winds we have to ensure our pets and animals kept outside are safe and secure.

Today the Bailiwick continues to see weather that puts our animals and wildlife at risk.

Often during the winter months with the high winds and stormy weather makes it difficult for wild animals and birds to feed and rest.

Also with the high winds we have to ensure our pets and animals kept outside are safe and secure.

The GSPCA are asking those that live around and visit our coast to please watch out for injured animals in need as well as seal pups which can get separated from their mothers at this time of year especially when we see bad weather.

The GSPCA asks that you think of your animals with the weather bomb due.

Bad weather means it is difficult for hedgehogs and wild birds to feed normally, and young seal pups can easily be separated from their mothers.

Below is some advice on what you can do if you find an injured animal, but please remember we have a 24 hour emergency service and our number is 01481 257261.

If possible, contain the animal before calling - see our capture and boxing advice below.

Weather Warning - Please think of your animals with the high winds due

Submitted by GSPCA on 14:28, 12th Dec, 2011 | 0

During stormy and gale force weather the GSPCA often get calls to injured animals and wildlife that have been affected due to the high winds.

We are asking all pet owners and farmers to think of their animals that are kept outside or in out houses.  With the severe weather hutches and animal pens can easily be moved and damaged putting those animals kept outside at risk and in need of appropriate shelter.
