Not for the faint- hearted.....!!



Honestly, if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes and actually snapped each stage as it happened I wouldn't have believed it possible.....!! I'm not sure where he found the bone, maybe from a bin, he managed somehow to drag it off the road onto the grass. He flipped it like a 'Top Chef' to get a better angle and so started probably the most bizarre scene I've witnessed for a while! It only took him roughly five minutes to somehow get that huge bone down his gullet, he looked around with a very satisfied expression, and took off.....HOW !!! I can only imagine how long it would take for something like that to digest, if at all.....!! Hope your weekend is a little less 'weird'.....

  3. Well it's the weekend so why not go a little crazy and swallow an entire bone?!? :)

    Good series of images.

  5. Oh my goodness. I'm sure a chicken bone is no good for the digestion. Wonder whether this seagull is now searching for some Alka Seltzer ?

  6. This proves that those critters will eat anything. Too funny that he was able to take off right after the delectable meal. One would think that he'd be grounded, at least for a little while.

  10. I bet he is now looking for one of those fizzy drinks drunks use in the morning!

  11. Oh my gosh, I can't believe he swallowed that whole thing and then was able to fly afterward. I wonder if he will have a days long tummy ache.

  12. I saw and photographed something like this. The only difference was the the provenience of the part was clearly visible, dead, nearby...

  13. Would that be considered canablism(sp)? Let's hope he coughs it up to feed babies...

  17. That is truly amazing. I've seen gulls do some nutty things but this takes the cake or the bone, so to speak. Great post!

  18. He must have been one hungry bird - I'm thinking of all that splintered bone - not good for the digestion.
    Thanks for sending on the beautiful weather Grace - it's glorious here today!

  24. Guess a gull's got to do what a gull's got to do.

  25. Great photo series! SICK! Did he have any sauce with it, or at least a beer? Before I read to the end of your post I wondered about the digestion time. That says something pretty frightening about the gastric juices at work there, either that or the peristaltic action. Great post!

  26. The first image is outstanding, a beautiful survivor with a great background!

  27. Blimey, was that really a chicken leg? That guy will suffer a bit more than a stomach ache! Great pix though Perth! Have a nice day...

  28. Better him eating a left over chicken bone than my dog finding it during our walk... lol! And they have to have lunch too, right!?
