A man who was angry with an animal activist while fishing saved a stranded seagull.
Lincoln, who hosts the Land Fish TV YouTube channel, walked through Brighton Breakwall in Melbourne, Australia, when he saw a bird hitting the back of the boat.
He crossed the jetty to take a closer look and saw the seagull struggling just a few inches above the water with a thin plastic line in his mouth.

Lincoln lifted it onto the boat and held its head down. He used a pair of pliers to cut the wire before he released it from the bird's wings and released it onto the scaffolding.
& # 39; It bit me a few times, but it was just a few small tricks, & # 39; said the fisherman.
& # 39; The bird would have been quite stressed, so I don't blame him for trying to fight back, even if I tried to save him.
& # 39; I have released a few other birds from their gear before, but never in the same situation as this one. & # 39;
Lincoln said he suspected someone had thrown a line with ace and cut the line because they couldn't get it back.

& # 39; When hooks are left with bait by the small amount of irresponsible fishermen, birds come to eat it, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; As fishermen, I think we should all ensure that we do not leave fishing equipment or waste in the area.
& # 39; And when you see an animal in need, it often takes just a few moments to save a life, then do it. & # 39;

It is after the fisherman has filmed the bizarre moment that he was interrupted by an activist and accused of breaking the law while wetting a fishing line.
Lincoln was with a friend at Albert Park Lake in Melbourne when he was confronted with the woman.
The woman accused the pair of "disturbing wildlife" & # 39; and threw them for fishing near swans.

Lincoln filmed the woman's outburst and posted it online on his YouTube channel.
& # 39; Have you read the sign? The sign there that says it's an insult to disturb the wild life? & # 39; the woman says and also holds a telephone up to film the interaction.
& # 39; We're not disturbing the game & # 39 ;, Lincoln replies.
& # 39; You fish, you try to kill fish, & # 39; she says.
& # 39; There are baby swans here and swans trying to raise their young and you have your plastic fishing line out, do you think that's very appropriate? Do you really care? & # 39;
& # 39; I respect wildlife, I catch and release fish and I follow the law & # 39 ;, Lincoln says calmly.
& # 39; I don't know how you live with yourself & # 39 ;, the woman says before she storms away.
Albert Park Lake, just a few miles outside of the CBD of Melbourne, is a popular fishing spot because it is filled with golden perch and rainbow trout.
In a statement from the Victorian Fisheries Authority in 2018, the government agency revealed that it was legal to fish in the lake with a license and boasted about releasing 15,000 silver bass.
Her outburst came as animal activists became more vocal in recent months, stepping up protests and infiltrating farms.
National protest: dozens of activists chained themselves to machines at Carey Bros Abattoir in Yangan in remote Queensland and demanded the release of three lambs
Earlier this month, a group of vegan activists stormed a popular butchers in Perth with signs with pictures of slaughterhouses.
Their leader, in a white T-shirt, told customers: & # 39; We are here to shed light on an inherently cruel industry. & # 39;
The demonstrators then placed flowers under the showcases to remind the animals & # 39;
Since the beginning of the year, farms in Australia have been invaded by demonstrators, some of whom have chained themselves to machines.
In March, around 150 activists stormed Queensland Millmerran Lemontree Feedlot while a troubled farmer watched.
About 20 animal activists are said to have chained themselves to the Yangan slaughterhouse in Queensland in early April.
The demonstrations – criticized as & # 39; shameful and un-Australian & # 39; by Prime Minister Scott Morrison – were loosely organized by a network of meat-free activists to mark a year since the release of a vegan documentary, Dominion.
Meanwhile, vegan demonstrators storming through farms are being hit with fines of up to $ 440,000.
