((paul joncich)) but visitors are often exposed to gruesome evidence of carelessness caused by fishermen. a walk through the park is anything but idyllic according to residents who make daily visits. (( )) ((george knapp)) the lake at spend some time lounging, walking your dog, or fishing. wildlife. but some are not, and the results are horrific. some of the video you are about to see is graphic and disturbing. sunset park is about as good as it gets for water fowl. the lake is a year- round home to ducks and geese and other birds who like the climate and the steady food supply, not only insects but also the goodies handed out by bird lovers. it's against the rules to feed the birds but there is little if any enforcement. notice the park police in the background. the birds at sunset include rare migratory geese and more exotic waterfowl, such as this guy with a mohawk.as well as barnyard
here. locals come to bird watch, walk their dogs, or cast a lazy line into the lake to catch trout or other fish that are regularly re- stocked. and that's where the trouble begins. annoula wylederich/rescue s birds at sunset park: i do not come to the park any more without my tools to help birds... ((george knapp)) annoula wylederich uses her tools almost daily to deal with the trail of animal carnage caused by discarded fishing gear. she and a few others have been documenting the damage and rescuing birds for the past few years..this duck with a fish hook in its bill could be the poster bird for this issue..other photos are far more gruesome..wing s bent and broken and bent.appendage s amputated.bird s in severe condition, their feet blackened by the fishing line that slowly tightens and cuts them to pieces. annoula wylederich/rescue s birds at sunset park: families come here to appreciate the wild life and they and their children are subjected to an ongoing parade of birds in various stages of distress, whether it
or their bill or fishing line entangling their wing or their leg. it upsets people, obviously.. it. they either drown or die of infection or assorted other injuries.. ((george knapp)) the evidence is pretty easy to spot. in the branches above our interview, we saw fishing line in two different spots..a curious pigeon that had lost a foot to fishing line watched us. birds too entangled to fly hide in bushes.or end up floating in the water..the park has receptacles for discarded fishing gear but people use them to stash beer cans while still tossing line and hooks on the ground or in the water. annoula: i was here ten minutes today i came early and i've already collected this off the ground. this should be in receptacles. there are hooks here, there's fishing line. ((george knapp)) the damage extends beyond birds..ten years ago, sam marber found an abandoned pup in the park and named him boojie. they're still pals.
boojie got a three-pronged fishhook through his snout.sam was beside himself.worrie d that if he tried to take the dog to a vet it might also hook its tongue, or worse..it was almost dark and he called to the only person he could see. sam marber/dog owner 3643 i yelled out, do you have pliers? and what was the chances from a strange woman. she yells back, yes. i was amazed, and that was barb. ((george knapp)) the woman with the pliers helped remove the hooks from boojie who was taken to a nearby vet for treatment. it turned out barbara bogar is one of the park regulars who looks for injured animals while collecting hooks and line on the ground. barbara bogar/rescues birds at sunset park.i started to tell annoula.oh hello there. ((george knapp)) bogar has been collecting the evidence and documenting the damage. she videotapes many of her
of fishing gear and the heartbreaking consequences. barbara bogar i made a list..,28 birds in 2 months. every time i came. i can't even go for a jog any more... ((george knapp)) some birds are killed when struck by lead weights ..a few are found dead with entire poles attached. barb bogar: i carry these in my pocket. tweezers and a magnifying glass because you have to see and sometimes it's so deep... ((george knapp)) she and the other volunteers often take injured birds to the vet and pay the bill out of their own pockets..and they videotape many of the success stories.. most fishermen are considerate, they say, but the few they have confronted about the trash get pretty hostile so those contacts were stopped. sam marber: they think the fish are there just for them.it benefits people like me who just want to enjoy the park and enjoy looking at the birds.
not just fishermen. ((george knapp)) the folks who rescue injured birds say they are not trying to ban fishing but would like to see a minimal amount of enforcement, especially for unlicensed fishermen who don't seem to know any better, or don't care. the problem is that multiple agencies are involved and they all say the same things--they lack the manpower, or they lack jurisdiction and its some other agency's problem to fix. the i-team will be following up this story next week and will ask the agencies what they plan to do. george knapp 8 news now.
