The Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach posted photos of the hundreds of pills that were found in the park, 16532 Springdale St., where people and children often gather to watch the wild birds around the lake.

Animal Control was called in after some birds were found with symptoms of having overdosed on the pills.

A Canada goose and a gull survived their ordeal, and are being nursed back to health.

It was not immediately clear who the pills belonged to.

    How dumb can some people be? Imagine if a young child had gotten hold of one, two or more of those pills?? Take your unwanted med to a pharmacy that collects them.
