Angry birds are causing a storm but there’s no need to attack seagulls – even though they can injure people and pets. That’s the message from the police and RSPCA, after one seagull was poisoned in Bridport, Dorset.
It was left dumped outside a police station, along with its chick, in what seems like a backlash against the aggressive birds, which have hit the headlines recently.
Scott McGregor, from the Bridport police service, said: “Whether you love them or loathe them, one of our seagulls is suffering following a suspected poisoning.
“The seagull had vomited considerably and when the RSPCA were sent out, it was their view that the bird was poisoned.
‘Seagulls are protected for a reason and there is no need to poison them, causing them unnecessary cruelty and suffering.”
