I Witnessed a Seagull Being Run Over

This morning I witnessed a seagull being run over by a car.
I couldn't believe I actually saw that.
The gull tried to snatch a piece of food from the street, I hoped the bird would escape but...
I'm so shocked.

That's awful! I always feel horrible passing an animal that was killed by a car, but I've never seen one in action. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that!

A few weeks ago as the weather started to change and the snow finally melted away I was out walking my dog and discovered 2 squirrels along the route. They were frozen stiff, and I guess were stuck in the snow for.. who knows? Months I guess. It was really sad to think about how they got their, but I luckily didn't dwell on it as I had to immediately keep my dog from investigating.

Thank you for your condolences, I wonder if there was anything I could have done to save the gull like shoo the bird away to prevent the accident--I wouldn't have to get directly in front of the car to do that--I don't know. All I did this morning was leave a flower at the site. :(

I witnessed the EXACT same thing today, but it was a baby seagull and it was lost , and a bus ran over it slowly so it was in so much pain, them the back wheels went over it and ...i cant still hear its cry!! And the pop it made as the bus rolled over it !! :'(
What you witnessed was worse! Poor baby! Literally!
