Picture of the Week: Ratting a seagull

An image that captures the nightmare birds that are causing mayhem across Britain

 

Shared by The Telegraph, our Picture of the Week shows a seagull eating a six-inch rat whole.

A seagull that likes rats

 

Taken by someone named Wayne Perry in Plymouth and illustration of how deadly these vicious birds truly are, the two images of the bird devouring its prey highlight an ever-growing problem in the UK. An especially horrific example of the results of attacks by seagulls was highlighted last week when it was reported that an eight-year-old Yorkshire terrier had to be put down after being savaged by Herring gulls.

 

Elsewhere, TIME reported that “seagulls are terrorising animals in the UK and experts fear a baby might be next”. Even Alfred Hitchcock would have run for the hills.

  1. Horrid creatures. Need a cull on them. Possibly one of the reasons I don’t frequent the coast much. The attack on the terrier was too much. They are course now are a menace.

  2. I live in Thornton Cleveleys, a small town, just down the Coast from Blackpool and, in the opposite direction is Fleetwood, which was formally a Fishing Town, where huge amounts of Fish were landed by distant Fishing trawlers.
    Seagulls thrived on the Offal which fell off lorries and that in it itself kept the town cleaner.
    Other Seagulls followed the trawlers out to sea.
    That was back inn the 1980’s.
    However, given the demise of the Fishing Industry, the birds remain in situ, scavenging on remnants from outdoor Cafe’s, and often actually swooping and stealing food, whilst it is being eaten.
    During July, they have nested on the roof of my house and make a horrendous noise from 5:00am onwards.
    They have now moved off my roof, but something does need sorting out badly, for next year, and the current situation in Fleetwood..
    I believe they are a protected species.
    The only positive thing to report, appears to be the Seagull who devoured a rat.
