Someone has slipped sliced-open beer cans around the necks of at least three gulls in the Bay Area, and now an animal rescue group is trying to find the birds and the person or people responsible.

“It’s sick. What’s the next level of this kind of abuse?” said Rebecca Dmytryk of Monterey County-based WildRescue.

Dmytryk said she first heard about the birds after getting some disturbing photos at the end of September that showed a gull with half a Budweiser can stuck around its neck like a collar. She has confirmed sightings at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, a beach in Half Moon Bay and other undisclosed locations in the Bay Area.
