VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – A seagull was rescued after becoming tangled in transmission lines near the Lesner Bridge and Shore Drive, a spokesperson for Dominion Energy announced Sunday.

A specially-trained lineman and Dominion Energy biologists freed the bird, which will now be turned over to a Virginia Wildlife Center and a rehabilitation specialist.

No interruptions in service were reported during the rescue.

The situation was first reported to Dominion Energy late Saturday evening.
