Seagull Baiting

We would like to inform readers of a new trend that seems to be spreading across England at an alarming rate. This practice of seagull baiting was first noticed on the South coast of England and we have had a recent report that it has spread as far as Yorkshire on the North East coast of England.

This disgusting act of seagull baiting involves the throwing of pork pies off the edge of a cliff with the hope that a passing seagull will catch this bait mid air. The weight of the pork pie (and the greediness of the seagull) is then enough to bring the seagull crashing to its death onto the rocks below.

Seagull baiting is being largely ignored and not reported by local people as seagulls are perceived as vermin. Seagulls are not vermin but are in fact intelligent scavengers who perform a valuable service to human beings. Seagulls scavenge great numbers of dead or injured animals and organic litter which could pose a health threat to humans.

There will be more information and pictures coming very soon.

Update April 2011. Seagull Kite Flying

Peter Scales has provided us with more alarming information about seagull baiting.

He has brought to our attention information about the awful practice of seagull kite flying which involves a fishhook being attached to fishing line which is pressed into the centre of a lump of bread and then thrown into the air. A greedy seagull swoops down and voila! A seagull kite provides hours of fun for the perpetrators and sure death for the gull. Peter notes that seagull kites were seen flying as far North as Methil in Scotland as early as the late 70s.

Peter advises us that the practice of seagull kiting has superseded the disgusting act of seagull grenades which are used by embedding a lump of calcium carbide in bread and tossing it into the air for the greedy and hungry bird, but the joy the expanding pink mist brings is short-lived compared to the seagull on a string.

Thanks Peter.
