Killer Gulls

Gull eating a pigeon, Fosso Reale, Livorno
The usual brilliant minds have recently discovered what everybody here already knows: Livorno is invaded by gulls. These guys are also a bit confused about the number of the beasts and even more about what to do about this. Please do not click on this image if you are not ready for something quite crude.

I think I'll refrain from seeing what he's eating. The imagination's enough!

Luis Gomez said...

Well, that is what they do.

Gulls are survivors. I love 'em. :-)

Probably more appetizing then 'stolen' french fries.

I'm with Jose VP, I have a Peregrine falcon that likes to hunt the doves, it always seems to enjoy this activity right outside my bedroom window.. c'est la vie!
P.s. I'm not happy about it :)

Here 100 km from the sea, we have many seagulls

if they eat them, the number will decrease

VP said...

José - Yes, there is much worse, but I have not the stomach for photographing it...
Grace - I could really use a couple of Peregrine falcons!

How did you do that???

I'm with Randy. That's just nature for you.

Sorry but re. the falcon, I'm on the list before you!!!! :-)

It's a terrific photo, VP! I don't think gulls worry much about blood and guts - especially when they're hungry! Actually, that's true about most animals. I doubt if I would eat meat if I saw how it was prepared. :)

I'm not going to look!

It comes as a shock, this photo, because I never knew gulls do that.
It's a dog eat dog, bird eat bird world, I guess.

Jack said...

Nope. Not me. I am not going to look.
