Press Trust of India  |  Gurgaon 

An Australian black necked stork, which had got its beak trapped in a plastic ring, was rescued by officials (BHS) and Wildlife Department here.

The plastic ring had shut the migratory bird's beak and it was unable for eat for a week, Shyam Sundar Kaushik, DFO Wildlife range, said.

The bird was spotted in a week ago by some bird photographers who spent long hours in the wetlands of Gurgaon to click picture of the migratory birds.

They alerted the agencies about it and the bird was rescued from Najafgarh drain.

"The bird is under observation of veterinary doctors and will be release in the next two days, if found health," Kaushik said.
