Ick.  That's like chomping down on a subway rat.

Have fun with your panoply of diseases.  Hope it was worth it.

Huh- this sounds a bit familiar, I wonder why- oh.

I once caught a seagull on a topwater lure and had to reel it in from the sky.

that sounds like a Fleetwood Mac lyric, very strong metaphor.

Fark seagulls. Those farkers will fill up a parking lot and refuse to move even when you roll right over them at 1 mph.
 
2020-08-05 1:41:33 PM  
To be fair, that's actually a pretty natural response. Just about any other creature the bird would have done that to probably would have attempted to respond in the same way.

Seagulls suck. Only slightly less sucky than geese.  Nasty bastards, flying rats

I totally understand. There are good birds and bad birds but seagulls are a 3rd category.

Wow, I read something like this in another online tabloid article I saw at a news aggregator site on July 11th.

It's just so unnatural, a wild creature being bitten for trying to take another creature's food.  Again.

CSB time!

So I'm leaving for work on a Monday morning, and mrs bughunter says to me "Me and Mom are taking bughunter 2.0 to the beach today!  We're going to go early, we'll be the only ones there!  It'll be beautiful!"

Fargin' great, sweetie.  Have a good time at Point Dume [it -is- beautiful] while I'm dealing with asshole bosses and testing ill-designed software, I think.  "Have fun sweetheart!" I say.

About 10:30 am, I get a call, it's mrs bughunter.  "Seagulls stole my lunch!  One attacked my head and the other stole my sandwich out of my hand!  And bughunter 2.0's too!"  I start cracking up...

Turns out, she had chosen the day of the week that LA County Parks tractor rakes the beach before dawn, empties all the trash cans, and basically removes all the food sources for seagulls.

I explained this to her, and that those flying monkeys were starving.  And that my wife, her mum, and my son were the only people on the beach.

They had already had to take steps to prevent the gulls from rummaging thru their picinic basket.  And they didn't set a guard when they broke out the sammiches.  Bughunter 2.0 was only about 8, but that's a big enough ape child for the feathered rats to keep their distance from when it's on to them...

And it's not over yet!

About 2:30 I got another call from her.

"Ohmygod, ohmygod, oh no!"  This time, she's frantic.  Panicked.  Sobbing.  And driving.  Oh shiat, I thought.

I remained calm.  "What's happening??"

"I JUST RAN OVER AN EAGLE!!"

"What?"

[Sobbing]  "We were driving home and an eagle landed on the road right in front of me and I ran over it!  I killed it!!  [more sobbing]

I processed this.  Her preferred route to and from Malibu is Kanan Dume Road, which takes her over the Santa Monica Mountains.  My right brain immediately told me there was hilarity in here somewhere, and my left brain verified it about 100 milliseconds later.  Birds.

I cracked up.  "HAH, hah hahhahahaaa!"

"What?  What's so funny!"

"You got your revenge on the birds!"

[snif] "That's not funny!"  But I can tell that she thinks it is... at least she stopped sobbing.

"Are you sure it was an eagle.  And not a vulture?  Not all vultures have long droopy necks like in the cartoons."

"It was an EAGLE!  A BALD eagle!  It landed on some roadkill and I ran over it!"  Back to sobbing.

(Narrator:  it was a vulture)

I checked her truck that evening when I got home, no damage, no feathers, no guts in the undercarriage.  No evidence at all she hit anything, or what kind of anything it was.

Mrs bughunter is -not- a stupid nor silly sentimental type.  But she's convinced to this day that it was an eagle, she struck it, and killed it.

I think it was a vulture, and it was playing chicken with traffic, and was better at it than she thinks.

My big amazement from the article is that there's a legal protective act which includes beach pigeons.

No worries. The guy was on drugs. Some of them were probably antibiotics.
