Seabird injured by fishing lines returns to wild

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) — A rescued bird returned to the wild Tuesday thanks to a quick-thinking middle school student. 

The western gull was found severely injured by fishing lines earlier this month. 

The bird recuperated at Seaworld where a hook was removed from one of her wings and wounds around her mouth were treated. 

CBS News 8's Shawn Styles reports from the J Street Pier in Chula Vista where the bird was released by the girl that helped save it.
