Small Comfort to Firefighter but...

This report made me feel a tiny bit better about not being able to help a seagull with a broken wing at Singing Beach on Saturday. Police said with wildlife they let nature take its course and they couldn't capture it or put it out of its misery. I thought several times about wrastling it to the ground and wringing its neck but, really, no good would have come from that.

Muzzles for all

Clearly seagulls are dangerous not to mention ungrateful creatures and should be muzzled.

Turns out there were a bunch of other gulls on the pier looking down and laughing at the one stuck on the piling -- not one called 911 because they all thought he was a douchebag anyways. (Turns out he usually spends most of his time down at Revere Beach pestering Kelley's patrons.)
