May 5 (UPI) -- Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals officers in Wales helped rescue a kitten that was dropped from the sky by seagulls.

A resident contacted the RSPCA after witnessing the tiny 4-week-old kitten being attacked by a flock of seagulls and dropped from the sky at Sandy Cove in Cymru on Wednesday afternoon.

"This poor kitten must have been through a terrifying ordeal – seemingly swooped upon by a gull, before being dropped to the ground," RSPCA animal collection officer William Galvin said.

Officers said the kitten was unhurt and was taken to the Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Center, where staff nicknamed her "Sky."

The RSPCA shared a video of Sky, who will remain at the shelter until she is ready to be placed for adoption.

"Sky is very young, and will now be hand-reared at our Animal Centre, and should be available for re-homing when she is old enough," Galvin said.
