Lol I live that your concern while 360 no scoping seagulls is, "How is this affecting my personal image🧐pewpew"

[-] confusedbytheBasics 58 points 1 month ago

I do not understand why people are so upset about this. People kill vermin all the time in far more brutal ways.

The only correct answer. Idgaf about some sky rat, but I'd be a little shocked if someone snatched a seagull out of the sky near me and slammed it into a wall until it died.

I'd also not give a shit five minutes later and would probably regale my friends with the story of the seagull slammer.

Right, this is animal cruelty. There are people who find humane ways to deal with “pests” or “vermin”, so the fact that we have extermination practices for some population of animals doesn’t make this okay.

And those people aren't any more right... Seagulls are actually pretty interesting, long-living, and intelligent creatures. They simply can't compete with humans, that's all.

Humans should be above this sort of thing.

Justified. I was in Edinburgh with my family and we had a lovely outdoor table.

I went to the bathroom and our dinner came out while I was in the bathroom and a seagull STOLE MY GODDAMN £30 STEAK. Just hopped up on the table next to my brother-in-law and yoinked my medium-rare ribeye.

Fuck those sky-rats.

[-] gmtom 28 points 1 month ago

Your fault for sitting outside in Edinburgh tbf.

[-] [email protected] 31 points 1 month ago

Aye who the fuck leaves a steak unattended in Edinburgh? I'm amazed the seagull got it before a junkie scarfed it

[-] AnUnusualRelic 24 points 1 month ago

As a seagull, I'd have done the same

[-] [email protected] 24 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

As if you wouldn't steal a £30 pound steak if it had zero consequences and no morals attached, besides that I don't think anything deserves to be abused before getting killed and especially not in public with children watching.

[-] [email protected] 15 points 1 month ago

So you're saying he should had been more effective in killing the seagull in front of the kids

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 month ago

He just shouldn't have done it, but obviously yes that too.

if it had zero consequences

And yet, here there were consequences.

It's just a specific breeding programme and he was culling the failures. #evolution \s

I must say, it's brave of you to admit a bird outsmarted you. You must be fun at parties, though.

I'd say the comments section is gross and cynical, but then I remembered this is a British community.

This thread makes me wish i was an alien, not part the same species as this lot.

[-] Godric 10 points 1 month ago

I'd rather be Fr*nch than a seagull too! Wait, nah, other way around

Do British people go on vacation and just eat the same bullshit as at home

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 month ago

Don't want to accidentally eat any of that foreign muck or speak the lingo.

Stick to nice British food, like curry, burgers, Chinese, or pizza.

Seagulls are filth. The more domesticated ones will basically attack you at the beach if there's any food.

Hopefully we get seagull slaying more mainstream.

[-] ThatWeirdGuy1001 6 points 1 month ago

It's gonna end up like pigeons where they used to blot out the sky

[-] [email protected] 8 points 1 month ago

Then we will fight in the shade.

This man did nothing wrong

[-] Gabu 5 points 1 month ago

Even if we ignore the animal cruelty, he was bri'ish to begin with. There's no absolving that.

[-] Godric 8 points 1 month ago

Yep, forevermore they will wake screaming at the thought of some geriatric gammon about to grab them by the legs

Damn didn't know Jeremy Clarkson hated Brighton so much

[-] [email protected] 10 points 1 month ago

this one is a classic at this point

[-] Shellbeach 9 points 1 month ago

I will not... No, I will not, I will not I'm stronger than that. Oh whatever, I'm weak: shouldn't have.

Sorry

[-] Garbanzo 11 points 1 month ago

If you of ever been to the beach you would understand. There's plenty to hate but the seagulls are the worst have all have them.

So many in these comments deserve to go the way of that chip.

[-] [email protected] 26 points 1 month ago

Never realised "don't kill animals in front of children" was a hot take, but here we are.

[-] jose1324 8 points 1 month ago

Even hotter take

"Dont kill random animals"
