Seagulls Stealing Ice Cream

Seagulls, aka the rats of the air, are notorious for stealing what does not belong to them, and also being ruthless about it. Above is an seagull being nasty, stealing an ice cream cone from an unsuspecting victim.

With their noisy calls and voracious appetite they are a distinctive feature of the seaside.

But relations between humans and seagulls are becoming fraught. Holidaymakers from all over the World have complained of being "mugged" by fearless seagulls stealing chips, sandwiches and ice cream.

Seagulls are such sly thieves that shops actually no display warning signs that "Seagulls like ice cream too" and traders advise: "Keep your food close and keep it low."
