Seagulls found dead, dying in Highland Park

Dozens of birds found dead, dying or injured on Oakland Park Court

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. - Residents say dozens and dozens of seagulls were found dead, dying or injured in a Highland Park neighborhood on Tuesday.

The birds were found in the area of 12200 Oakland Park Court. Witnesses say the bodies of dead birds were everywhere. Sick and injured birds roamed the street as cars drove over the dead and dying.

"We are unsure what happened to the birds at this point," said Kristin Simon a cruelty investigator with PETA. Simon says the Michigan Humane Society and many concerned residents were in the area collecting injured birds.

It is not yet known what or who caused the death of the birds.
