Faux Paws


From mistaken reports of animals in distress, compiled over the past year by an animal-rescue shelter in Guernsey.

A sick seal on a beach was a duvet

A dead cat was a hand puppet

A gull hanging from a fence was a carrier bag

An injured crow was a black bag

An injured bird was a blond wig

A hedgehog was a pinecone

A stray pug was a frog
