An image that captures the nightmare birds that are causing mayhem across Britain
Shared by The Telegraph, our Picture of the Week shows a seagull eating a six-inch rat whole.
Taken by someone named Wayne Perry in Plymouth and illustration of how deadly these vicious birds truly are, the two images of the bird devouring its prey highlight an ever-growing problem in the UK. An especially horrific example of the results of attacks by seagulls was highlighted last week when it was reported that an eight-year-old Yorkshire terrier had to be put down after being savaged by Herring gulls.
Elsewhere, TIME reported that “seagulls are terrorising animals in the UK and experts fear a baby might be next”. Even Alfred Hitchcock would have run for the hills.
