Trained Raptors in Ocean City… Ocean City, New Jersey, has a problem with aggressive seagulls annoying and stealing from tourists and locals just trying to enjoy the beach and boardwalk. The city’s solution? Trained raptors. No, no, not the sort of raptors that terrorized Jurassic Park, although those were indeed trained in the Jurassic World sequel. No, less extinct raptors like hawks, falcons, and owls. East Coast Falcons has been contracted by the city to fly birds of prey above the boardwalk and beach. Turns out seagulls don’t like hanging out in areas where there a bunch of bigger birds who might want to eat them. The city says it will be humane, though, since the goal is to scare the seagulls away, not turn them into a tasty meal. HOTS thinks it’s a neat solution – especially since seeing owls and hawks is always a treat – but HOTS can’t help but laugh at the idea of someone in Ocean City responding to the problem of scary birds by saying, “How about we get our own scary birds – only bigger?”
