Captain Saves The Life Of Seagull After Being Friends For 15 Years

Captain Saves The Life Of Seagull After Being Friends For 15 Years

A captain has saved the life of a seagull he struck up an unlikely friendship with 15 years ago while out on the water.

Yup, while this might sound like a plot from a Pixar movie it's very true, with Captain John Makowsky explaining he has been pals with Red Eye the seagull since 2005.

Lobster captain John, from Maine, told CBS: "She comes right up to the window... just staring at me."

After enjoying many happy years of friendship out on the water, poor little Red Eye sustained a leg injury recently, leaving John concerned that she might not survive very long.

He explained: "I don't know why I was so emotionally crushed, but it was a piece missing. I was beginning to wonder how much longer I felt like doing this [going out on his boat]."

John was so upset by seeing his feathered friend in pain, even his wife Debbie noticed. She told the news outlet: "To watch John and see how sad he was. I could tear up right now."

Seeing his little mate in distress made John realise he had to do something to help, so he carefully caught little Red Eye and took her to Centre for Wildlife in Cape Neddick, Maine.

The expert team were able to tend to Red Eye's injuries, while John visited his pal to spoil her with her favourite treat - brown hake.

Just a few weeks later Red Eye was fighting fit and John was able to release her back into the wild, but the grateful bird hasn't forgotten about John and still visits him whenever he's out on his boat.

This isn't the first unusual friendship that's given us all the warm and fuzzies this year.

Back in February, we were treated to the adorable friendship between a pigeon that can't fly and a chihuahua with mobility problems.

Lundy was just a two-month old puppy when she arrived at New York-based animal rescue The Mia Foundation in January 2020 after a breeder noticed she had issues with walking.

Adorable little Lundy struck up a friendship with one of the rescue's oldest residents, a pigeon called Herman.

And now the pair are inseparable, with The Mia Foundation's founder Sue Rogers saying they're often spotted cuddling up together and taking naps. How cute is that?
