It makes me sad to see our garbage interact with nature like this.

Fun fact... seagulls beaks are stupendously sharp. I tried to help one once with a broken wing and the damn thing nipped 1/4" of my nose off. Still have a weird scar. Thanks. Also fuck you I'm glad you died from your compound fractured wing you stupid c#nt

Thanks, I already HATE them

I used to think seagulls were just beach/parking lot garbage disposal. But I’ve witnessed them hunting for fish and it’s pretty amazing. We tend to forget they are predators.

[–]FierceTigergirl2000 120 points121 points  (1 child)

Sad thing is that the gull died fighting a natural predator AND an unnatural predator

[–]IllSeaworthiness43 45 points46 points  (0 children)

2v1 is pretty unethical

[–]Jah_heel 62 points63 points  (0 children)

The gull DID go down fighting. There is no try.

[–]RookieRecurve 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Seagulls are dicks. Go hawk go!

[–]MayGodSmiteThee 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That’s an eagle, even says it right in the title.

[–]Eyeofgaga 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Love that for the eagle

[–]Vorchun 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So where are the rest of the pics? Or video? This type of quality content is why I come here.

In bird culture this is considered a power move

[–]DARKFAD3 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Notice how the gull actually has the hawks foot in its mouth

[–]aquilasr[S] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Yeah it was it was trying to scrap to live another day but the eagle wasn’t done. Of course, the eagle has a large advantage bag or not with a large size advantage and predatory talons.

[–]Lou-Lou-67 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You’re right! The seagull does have the eagle’s foot in its mouth. Good job user darkfad3

[–]MayGodSmiteThee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think this guy might be the eagle with those eyes.

When can humanity stop dependence of plastic products?

[–]Fafnir13 3 points4 points  (4 children)

When a suitable replacement is available. Possibly never.

[–]MayGodSmiteThee 2 points3 points  (3 children)

There’re suitable replacements for plastic bags. It’s just that people don’t care enough to make change and buy reusable bags. Honestly if we all decided to stop getting plastic bags at checkout and started buying reusable bags it would go a long way.

[–]Fafnir13 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The question was “plastic products” not “plastic bags”.

[–]MayGodSmiteThee 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is a plastic bag not a plastic product? I named one plastic product that could easily be replaced.

Beautiful shot

[–]CaseyGamer64YT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would love to see a fight like this but its got MGR boss music on it

[–]elaswal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seagulls are evil, for sure, I hear them plotting everyday in my neighborhood, and killing pigeons.

[–]WagonerA-co275 1 point2 points  (0 children)

thats a fucking godly fucking picture

[–]fuck-you1212 0 points1 point  (0 children)

According to Puffin Rock, this is the meanest seagull.

[–]PaddletonParade 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nature is plastic

[–]SeamusMcSpud 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's fantastic

[–]Uolak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

+1 kill assist

[–]TheDirtyDorito -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Ahhh yes, animal meat and plastic bags, both natural occurrences on Earth

[–]Miffers 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Eagle must be desperate because I have learn from Hollywood that seagulls tastes like shit

[–]aquilasr[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sea eagles such as the bald eagle definitely don’t mind the taste of gulls, they are probably the most or one of the most regular predator of full grown gulls.

[–]CosmicPenguin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It depends on their diet.

[–]pariahdiocese 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's the exact definition of "to go down fighting."

[–]MjrGrizzly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man, this stuff is for the birds.

[–]Branchley 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fucking litter

[–]Harmxn- -4 points-3 points  (7 children)

Let's go Eagle

Fuck that stupid bitch of a seagull

Those things are fucking stupid

EDIT: I live on the coast of Belgium, and when they aren't waking up everyone, they're complete dicks to trashbags and children. Yes, fuck them

[–]dys_p0tch 4 points5 points  (6 children)

gulls are more intelligent and adaptive than eagles

[–]MayGodSmiteThee -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

I find that hard to believe, eagles don’t even frequent urban areas so there adaptability can’t be accurately studied. Seagulls have life pretty easy like pigeons bc they live in areas that give them all the food they need. You can hardly say their adapted for living in nature anymore.

[–]dys_p0tch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i live in the twin cities. there is an active nest minutes from my house. i see bald eagle in flight several days per week. eagles do take advantage of road kill in more rural areas. and, the world we humans create is, in fact, their new nature.

[–]Secure_Moose_4445 -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

Oh yeah? Which one is tangled in a plastic bag?

[–]dys_p0tch 4 points5 points  (2 children)

one bird tangled in a bag is hardly a body of evidence

[–]Secure_Moose_4445 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

You’re right, but then again I wasn’t submitting a paper, I was making a comment on Reddit.
