The RSPCA is urging people not to use glue traps after two tawny owls are caught in the devices within a week.
The second, saved in St Columb, Cornwall after being found with glue covering most of its wings and tail. The first was discovered in Clapton In Gordano, North Somerset. Both were taken to West Hatch Wildlife Centre where they were washed and helped to recover before they'll be let back into the wild.
It is legal to use glue traps to catch rats and mice, their limbs get stuck to the glue as they run across them. But the animal charity is asking people to stop using them as they inadvertently catch other animals.
