Man Bites Seagull Over His McDonald’s Meal, Gets Arrested

Police stationed at Plymouth, UK, were shocked when they saw a man sinking his teeth into a seagull before throwing the bird on the floor. According to the man, the seagull attacked him because it took a taste of his McDonald’s meal, and so he grabbed and bit it . The police immediately rushed into the scene and detained the man.

Around this time, the man volunteered the information that he was under the influence of drugs and it was decided that he should be taken to Derriford Hospital for treatment.
The seagull was clearly injured by the incident but flew off before we were able to check on its welfare. We don't know what happened to it afterwards.

Because seagulls are protected by UK laws, the man, if found guilty, could face six months in jail or a fine of £5000 (around $6300).

Wait a minute - Seagulls are protected by UK laws? Seriously? A bit of research shows our cousins may have overstepped a bit on this one. And then there's this exception:
It is not illegal to destroy a nest, egg or bird if it can be shown that the act was the incidental result of a lawful operation which could not reasonably have been avoided.
Specific choice of cuisine aside; is it not lawful to eat McDonald's in public? Case dismissed.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)

Yet, Seagulls swallow rabbits whole on youtube. Because they're evil and care nothing about other animals at all. Yet politicians bend over backwards for evil murderous birds with an IQ of 12. Lemme know how that plays out.
