A Person Killed at Least 10 Seagulls by Luring Them To Their Deaths With Popcorn

Maryland police are digging for information on a suspect who purchased popcorn at a Dollar Store and dumped it on the ground to lure in seagulls before running them over. The police say that the suspect “intentionally” lured them in and proceeded to run over “at least 10 birds”.

On Saturday the Laurel Police Department posted on Facebook, “ANIMAL CRUELTY: INFORMATION NEEDED”

Laurel police responded to an animal cruelty call, and upon arriving on the scene, they found several deceased birds all in close proximity to each other. After the suspect did their damage, they fled the scene. Police believe it happened between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m. In November, President Donald Trump signed the bipartisan bill into law which prohibits any bodily harm to non-human mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. The Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act, or PACT Act, bans abusive behavior towards animals. Violations of these laws are punishable with up to seven years in federal prison and penalty fees.

One of the seagulls was taken to a local vet’s office but it didn’t survive through the night. Laurel is about 20 miles out of Baltimore.

First of all, who the actual heck just goes, “hey you know what’d be a lot of fun? RUNNING OVER AS MANY SEAGULLS AS I CAN!”. Why are people so dumb? Please don’t abuse animals ya filthy crotch goblins. If you have before, go get some help please. Or you know, find a healthier way to express things. Just why?

I really hope that the Laurel police catch the perpetrator and put some serious consequences into effect. But I mean, baseball bats and trees are great for expressing feelings. Punching bags – non-living punching bags – work pretty well too. I think that the suspect, after hopefully being caught, should have to spend some time in a psych ward. Just… UHGHHH. No. Nope. There isn’t much information on the incident at the moment, but hopefully something will be done about
