Saved from a slow death in gillnet

gillside

From one of our colleagues in the Orkneys.

A local angler caught a spurdog which was swimming around caught up in some gillnet.

It was still feeding obviously, but also slowly getting its head cut off as the image shows.

The angler cut away all the net and the spurdog swam away, hopefully the wounds will heal and it will survive.
