Hungry, Hungry Seagulls

"We've seen an increase in the birds," said Jorge Costa, the Giants' operations manager, "and the behavior seems to be more aggressive." The Western gulls have gotten so comfortable with the crowds at AT&T Park, that they're now showing up earlier than ever to swoop into stands and gobble up dropped food and sometimes even defecate on people. It's gotten so bad that officials are considering using falcons or hawks to chase them away. [The Bay Citizen/photo via Chris Saulit]
