Seagulls eating food touched by humans

Seagulls eating food touched by humans

Seagulls who are known to plague anyone who dares to eat with them now prefer food touched by humans as per new study conducted in Cornish towns located in South West England.

The study was conducted on 38 gulls which were approached with two flapjacks under buckets in front of them with one of the flapjacks touched by humans. 19 gulls picked flapjacks touched by human researchers.

This strange behaviour suggests that gulls are relying on human action to decide what they should eat.

People usually get annoyed by gulls and there are laws in many countries prohibiting humans to feed gulls but with what researchers have come up, it seems more gull-human interaction is required.
