I was expecting a Lisa Simpson saving an animal type of ending. Surprised when it didn't fly in front of a bus or get snatched by an eagle.

My German teacher told me that as a boy he'd tie two fishing hooks at each end of a piece of fishing line, bait them with bread then throw the contraption to the seagulls who'd swallow it all down then tear themselves apart as they tried to fly away from each other.
I don't think he liked seagulls.

It's farking up natural selection.  That seagull is going to breed more stupid seagulls that get stuck in light posts, causing us thousand of dollars per year in seagull removal.  If he just let it mummify up there it would have been a lesson to all the other seagulls not to get stuck in light posts.

FTR, I have no issue with killing invasive or harmful animals. I DO have an issue when there is cruelty in the killing.

This is the fire department getting a DRONE out of a tree at the Zoo.

Not sure why the pilot though the fire department was the best option but there it is.

The Zoo is a no drone zone.

I was fishing once and a seagull swooped down and grabbed my lure.

A very exciting ten minutes ensued.

Seagull was fine. I was a little beat up.

I should add, it was in my youth and it was a  stupid "I bet you can't hit that from here" thing. Well, I did on the first try, and the gull, though seemingly agitated, was no worse for the wear as the bag was near the top of its arc.

California Firefighter Rescues Seagull Stuck on Streetlight

it contains practically no information not in the headline, such as what the bird was stuck on. It does say

> "The seagull was later captured by Animal Control to be further evaluated," the department said.

Why? To see if it had rabies by cracking open its skull and taking a brain tissue sample?

KITH is right. They have reached the limit of what they can learn for butt-probing red necks.

10% of the rednecks seem to enjoy it.
