The Hitchcock classic The Birds became a little too real in a British seaside town this week. Seagulls there are attacking residents and dive-bombing mail carriers.
Perranporth, a small town on Cornwall’s northern coast, has seen its share of angry gulls, but attacks on residents seem to be worse than ever. Seagulls are currently nesting and actively protecting their chicks. Apparently bright colors aggravate the birds, causing them to swoop down and target people’s heads.
