Trapped, Mud-Covered Magpie Rescued From Hole in Melbourne

Wildlife rescuers pulled a trapped magpie from a muddy hole in suburban Melbourne on December 11.

The bird was covered in mud, which stopped it from being able to fly free from the tight space. Using a long pole, rescuers were able to free the bird before giving it a bath and taking it to a vet. Credit: Warriors 4 Wildlife via Storyful
