To remove a bird from a glue trap, first put on a pair of gloves to avoid getting your hands stick. Use a cotton swab or other small, blunt object to work the edge of the bird's body free from the glue. Slowly and carefully peel the bird away from the trap, being careful not to rip any of its feathers. If the bird is still stuck in places, you can use vegetable oil or mayonnaise to help loosen the glue. Once the bird is free, you can place it in a box or other container lined with a soft material, and bring it to a wildlife rehabilitation center.

It is sad to see the bird in this condition and it is heartbreaking to think about how long it might have been there.

What to do if an animal is stuck on a glue trap?

If you find an animal stuck on a glue trap, Mary Cummins of Animal Advocates recommends calling a wildlife rehabilitator, who would be best equipped to handle the situation. If one is not available, she suggests the following procedure: 1. Wear heavy gloves to protect yourself from bites. 2. Clear the area around the trap by kicking it or throwing stones at it in order to free the animal. 3. If possible, use a stick or broom handle to pry up and open the jaws of the trap, so that the animal can crawl out. 4. Place a large rock or log nearby as a ""fence"", in case the animal tries to climb back into the trap; this will prevent it from re-entering and getting caught again.
