Shoot to kill in Tynemouth?

This is a picture of a Herring Gull hanging dead from a TV aerial in Hotspur Street in Tynemouth. It's been here since last Friday.

A victim of local residents who wish to rid the village of gulls
 or did it hang itself after tuning into the last England match?


  1. Ridiculous isnt it Tim? :-(

    If they dont like gulls around they shouldnt live by the coast!!

  2. Indeed Mark. However, closer examination of this gull shows that it may be an accidental death and have updated blog accordingly. Persecution does go on in most coastal towns and needs to be tackled.
