Hungry seagulls are a growing problem in coastal areas.

飢腸轆轆的海鷗在沿海地區成為一個日益嚴重的問題。

 

 Seagulls are a common sight on beaches around the world. These large, noisy birds can appear friendly, especially to visitors who have brought a picnic!

 海鷗是世界各地海灘上常見的景象。這些大型的吵雜鳥兒有時可能看起來很友善,特別是對帶來野餐食物的遊客!

 

  Many people like to feed seagulls as a kind of entertainment. It can be amusing to watch the birds fighting over little pieces of bread or chips. However, when animals get used to being fed by humans, they will lose their fear of them and may become aggressive. Seagulls are not very dangerous, but they have been known to attack humans, usually people that are holding food.

  許多人喜歡把餵食海鷗當作一種娛樂活動。看著這些鳥兒為了麵包或洋芋片的碎屑爭奪搶食會是很有趣的一件事。然而動物習慣被人類餵食後,牠們會喪失對人類的畏懼而可能變得有攻擊性。海鷗雖然不會很危險,但牠們已知會攻擊人類,通常是那些拿著食物的人。

 

  The usual food sources of seagulls, and all birds, are threatened by climate change, so their feeding habits are changing. Seagulls have been seen eating pigeons, rabbits, and even other seagulls. On occasion, they will even drink beer, which makes it difficult for them to fly and can result in other unusual behavior.

  海鷗以及所有鳥類的平常食物來源受到氣候變遷的危害,所以牠們的覓食習慣也在改變。有人見過海鷗吃鴿子、兔子,甚至其他海鷗。有時候牠們甚至會喝啤酒,這會造成牠們飛行困難,而且可能會引起其他不尋常的行為。

 

  If you are an animal lover, it is best to avoid offering animals any kind of human food.

  如果你是愛護動物的人,最好避免提供任何人類食物給動物吃。
