Are Seagulls Killing Whales in Patagonia?

It sounds ludicrous, but it could just be true: scientists say seagulls may be responsible for hundreds of southern right whale moralities off the Argentine coastline

SpoOoOky...i wonder if there's a way to stop the seagulls without culling them in the future as is usually man's answer. Thx Cal

How very interesting. We need to do more to protext whales if this is what they have to work against as well.

"This harassment can last for hours at a time. As a result, right whale mothers and their calves are expending much precious energy during a time-of-year when mothers are fasting and at a site where little to no food is available to replenish fat reserves. The gull harassment and the extensive wounds they make must have a very negative effect on the health and body condition of these whales and is certainly very stressful."

How sad :-(

The word MAY being the operative word!....COULD it also be the the intrusion of scientists? longer willing to observe & learn how they adapt but to interfere in the natural process of creatures in the wild!.... Darwin said "It's not the strongest nor the fittest but those able to adapt that will survive!....& those that are least willing to adapt are HUMANS!
