An 80-year-old Welshman had a fatal heart attack after being swooped on by the birds. In southwest England, a woman was rushed to the hospital with deep beak wounds to her head, and a pet dog was pecked to death. A preschool in Scotland had to hire falconers armed with hawks to safeguard its children.
The aggressive birds have been on a killing spree in the scenic Cornwall area, recently pecking a dog and a tortoise to death. Even an aging pensioner was knocked over and left bloodied by a dive-bombing bird, the Telegraph reports.
Experts are now concerned that the problem will only get worse, calling for individuals to not leave their babies unattended as images of small rodents and even other fowl being devoured whole by ravenous gulls spread on social media.

I originally saw the article on MSN this morning, but why hasn't anyone from the UK brought this up?
According to the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), Europe's largest wildlife conservation charity, the loss of cliff-top breeding sites to coastal development and depleted fish stocks at sea are propelling the inland migration.
A worried council has recently expressed fears that the Whitby Gull Population is being ISIS trained in the middle east.
In a Real Whitby Interview, Councillor Reggie Fullerlove of Love Lane, Whitby claims “The Seagull Crises is getting worse by the minute, they are stealing our jobs, marrying our wives and now even eating our children”.
Fellow councillor Earnest Backslash said – This has now gone to Government level, even David Cameron has made comment after the gulls made national news last week after eating a families pet dog.
Backslash added – “Some of these birds are now Isis trained in Syria and Iraq before flying home to reek havoc in our neighbourhood. This one in my photograph (Below) is just finishing off a small child it kidnapped from the swing-bridge, having already eaten both parents leaving no trace of their existence. Gone are the days when they just stole one of Christine’s infamous sausage sandwiches off the odd tourist. Now they are eating people, and its just all gone too far. I daren’t even go out to empty me bin these days”
