Picture the scene..
Your walking down the red carpet at Cannes showcasing your new film which has been months in the making, your pristine Channel outfit is bound to be a best seller and you have the man of your dreams on your arm, what can go wrong? High above in the skies a flock of seagulls spot the commotion on a typical quiet early Summer afternoon and think food..
Swopping down to take a closer look at the action the seagulls aren’t bothered by the fact their prey are millionaires or that the nations top media gurus are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the top guns in the celeb World, all these fearsome feathers creatures are bothered about is filling their stomachs!
Of course in celeb World where theres a problem that may interfere with getting the most coveted images of the hottest stars in all their designer gear you can guarantee there will be some PA in the background frantically scouring the net looking for a solution.
The solution found in 2016 comes in the form of an evil looking hawk. One of the focal points of Cannes the Grand Hyatt hotel decided they were going to take matters into their own hands by hiring a Hawk trainer and his five birds to monitor events and of course take flight and scare any hapless seagulls off track.
Hawk trainer ‘Puzin’ has described how seagulls can run amok and risk ruining a stars big day: seagulls cause multiple issues at the festival. “The seagulls come to the tables, take the food and break the glasses. It’s not good for the guests,A glass of wine on their clothes, just before the red carpet, really not good! We’re here for 10 days, protecting the most prestigious guests during the festival.”
Another example of how seagulls are causing nuisance not only in the uk BUT further afield!
