Wildlife Photographer Shocked To See Seagulls On Beach Fighting Over A Dildo

Seagulls, Dildo

If you ever needed proof that there was too much plastic floating around in our oceans, this is it.

Conservation photographer Jennifer Leigh Warner was at the Children’s Pool in La Jolla, California, earlier this week.

She was hoping to get some shots of baby seals that had been born in the area. But her attention was drawn to a rowdy group of seagulls that were squabbling over what looked at first like a random piece of plastic that they had found.

But when she zoomed in with her camera she realised to her shock that the gulls were fighting over a dildo.

She told technology blog Gizmodo that she was annoyed at first, but couldn’t help seeing the funny side: "Before realising what the object was, I was annoyed and mad, because plastic pollution is a real serious problem, and as a conservation photographer I’m documenting human impacts on wildlife.

Jennifer who works with leading conservation organisations, such as the Cheetah Conservation Fund and Shoot’em with a Camera, which fights against trophy hunting, wildlife trafficking and poaching, says that she’s happy that these photos have been going viral as a way to draw people’s attention to plastic pollution on a beach.

Seagulls, Dildo

Gulls are opportunistic feeders, making off with ice-creams, chips, and even a small dog on occasion.

But while dogs are notorious for finding dildos and mistaking them for bones, ornithologists say it’s comparatively unusual for a seagull to make off with a vibrator.
