Inside the towns held hostage by psycho seagulls that break into kitchens & hotels leaving locals terrified

SEASIDE towns are being held hostage by mobs of psycho seagulls making the lives of locals hell.

The brazen birds are even breaking into homes and hotels across the coasts of Scotland to swipe food – as residents reveal they are living in fear for the next time the gulls will strike.

One woman was left speechless when one waltzed into her kitchen four days in a row "to steal her dog’s dinner".

Residents have now revealed their mental health is in tatters after the barrage of attacks – with some struggling with the unbearable squawks of the birds, while others are forced to run in fear from the dive-bombing pests.

Gillian Durrant, from South Ayrshire, told The Sun Online: "I moved into new build. The gulls are sitting on roofs day and night squeaking.

"The noise is the worst. They need to be culled."

Another woman said on Facebook: "They are a nightmare, I can’t have the windows open at night because of the noise.

"One stole a steak off our BBQ while it was cooking. And not to mention the mess or being bombed.

"They are flying s***ing machines."

A third fed up mum said her two daughters, aged three and 11, were "attacked" outside a charity shop in Dumfries.

"They actually dive bombed to get the girls' food", she said.

"I had to swing the wheelchair round just so they couldn't get to them.

"My daughter in the chair couldn't stop shaking for ages afterwards. They are horrible birds.

"I don't understand why they are protected, Dumfries is overrun with them."

Others referred to the gulls as "flying rats", with many campaigning for a "much-needed" cull.

Gillian said: "Every night since I moved here I've been woken up in the middle of the night. I definitely would agree with a cull."


Another local added: "I got swooped the other night. It was actually quite scary."

And a third from Heathhall, Dumfries, commented: "Sick of them in waking me up at 4am. I don't feed them, leave food for them or encourage them in any way.

"The only conclusion to make now is to make efforts to control their numbers. Perhaps they could be captured and taken to the coast?"

Despite the constant disruption, some people have seen the funny side of it.

One plucky gull wanders into the Royal Mackintosh Hotel in Dunbar, East Lothian, so frequently the owners have even given it a name.

'Buddy' is frequently "first in the queue" for breakfast and often sneaks into the bar – and has even been caught on camera sliding down the bannister.

The managers now post regular updates about Buddy's adventures on Facebook, with him most recently spotted a few minutes down the road on East Beach.
