    Treating wildlife yourself is illegal, and that's generally a good law which protects wildlife (assuming you are in the US). It is okay of course, to take them to a wildlife rehabber, which is any wild animals best shot at a good life and a future.

    You can google wildlife rehabilitation directory to find listings. Sometimes they are close, and sometimes far. I once drove a mockingbird baby two hours after my cat attacked him while my cat, dog, and I were out for a walk (he was a special cat, and loved to walk with us).

    But it is important to get the gull to a rehabber soon, because if the wing heals poorly, his chance of a good life becomes an issue.
