Birds Rescued After Overdosing On Prescription Pills Dumped At Park

A goose and a gull are being nursed back to health after eating some of the hundreds of prescription pills that were dumped at a park south-east of Los Angeles.

Photos of hundreds of pills found at a park in Huntington Beach, a city southeast of Los Angeles, were posted by The Wetlands and Wildlife Care Centre.

It's a park where people and children often gather to watch the wild birds around the lake.
