THIS unfortunate seagull got a bit more than it bargained for after getting its head stuck inside a food container.
The gull was seen in Kittybrewster, in Aberdeen, looking faintly embarrassed after managing to get the takeaway box stuck around its neck like a bib.
It is thought the greedy bird had been rummaging for scraps in a nearby bin.
A number of passers-by attempted to help the bird by removing the polystyrene box, but it flew off before the makeshift bib could be removed.
Scottish SPCA Chief Inspector John Carle said: “It looks like the gull can still fly which will make it difficult to catch.
“However, if anyone spots the bird they should contact our animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
