Seagull Cull: Declining fish industry is to blame

Re gulls story.

I wonder who came first man or animals?

The fishing industry is declining, they (seagulls) relied on the fish which was thrown overboard so now they have a problem in surviving.

Why do I say that? I moved from inland to the coast and seagulls were there where I used to live. I would find it offensive being classed as a litter lout if I feed seagulls.

Shall we go round fining people who feed the urban fox or the person who feeds badgers in their gardens?

I’m sure Scarborough Council did once cull seagulls, although not in Filey.
