Whale-Eating Sea Gulls

Aug 302012
 
 By , August 30, 2012

Sea gulls off the coast of Argentina have lately taken to taking a bite out of Southern Right Whales when they breach to take on air. This opens a wound for them to tear a few chunks of meat from before the whale submerges. Then they take a little more flesh and blubber each time the whale surfaces.

The problem has become so serious that the Argentine police patrol boats have been given instructions to shoot the gulls. Whale watching is a prime source of tourist revenue for the area.  The experience is somewhat spoiled if it  resembles an Alfred Hitchcock film.

It is thought by environmentalists that the enormous amount of trash that finds its way to the sea has caused an explosion in the gull population, forcing them to find new food sources.

Be seeing you.
