Veterinarians treat 'exotic' bird, realize it's just a seagull covered in curry

An orange bird saved by passersby and brought to an animal hospital turned out to just be a seagull covered in spices.

The Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in the U.K. saw an especially vibrant avian patient on July 1. In a Facebook post, the hospital said members of the public rescued a bright orange bird from the side of the road that couldn't fly.

"We had no idea what to expect and would never have guessed this!" the hospital wrote. The bird, as it turned out, was covered "in curry or turmeric," according to the hospital.

Aside from smelling a bit "pungent," the bird was otherwise healthy. Named Vinny, after the Indian dish vindaloo, he's on the road to being released back into the wild after a thorough bath.
