Toby Burnham- The Seagull Whisperer

So yesterday this Homie was on the roof of Toby Burnham’s lobster boat The Jupiter II with a striper plug with it’s treble hooks stuck in its leg and abdomen.  it was stuck hobbling around and in obvious pain.

Toby was inside the cabin oblivious to the condition of the seagull and when he popped his head out the seagull flew off the roof of the boat and onto the roof of our dock here at Captain Joe and Sons.

Toby grabbed a piece of herring and lured the injured seagull back down off the roof of the dock and just as the seagull got within striking range he snatched it by the tail and held it by it’s neck.

Then grabbing a pair of metal cutters he snipped the treble hooks to remove them from the feet and abdomen without tearing the belly out of the seagull.

Moments later he was on the deck eating a piece of fish scraps Toby fed him.

Toby – Pet of the Week

toby

I’m Toby, I arrived at the Cape Ann Animal Aid (CAAA) as a young kitten with an upper respiratory infection that caused one of my eyes to be injured beyond repair and it had to be removed. I was placed in foster care, have had my surgery and

I am a healthy, well adjusted six-month-old boy kitten.  Did you hear about the CAAA’s 1st Annual Golf Tournament ?  It will be held on Mon., Oct. 17. Scramble/12:30 p.m., shotgun start and registration begins at 11: am at Bass Rocks Golf Club. Fee: $160. per golfer includes greens fee, cart, prizes and dinner catered by Timothy S. Hopkins!  For more information, please e-mail golf@CapeAnnAnimalAid.com

I won’t be at the Tournament, I don’t know how to golf!

Jackie Bonham Represents With Toby!

Because where else can you get this kind of experience?  Friendly lobstermen like our pal Toby chomping on a flounder carcass while you represent with a new free GMG sticker.  What’s a vacation without an authentic experience like that?  Come down and get your own free GMG sticker at our dock 95 East Main Street Gloucester Ma.  If we’re not busy I’ll even give you a quick lesson on lobster gender.

Marbled Lobster Landed By Toby Burnham Aboard The Jupiter II

I took this picture juxtaposed against a bunch of regular lobsters so you could see just how different they are.   Toby Burnham on the Jupiter II caught this marbled lobster a couple years ago and landed it at our dock.
