I live in the Pacific Northwest....
I live in an apartment house, we have a patio downstairs that is walled in.....
My question?
How do you get a Seagull out of the patio? No kidding a BIG seagull.
.....animal control was called yesterday afternoon....I did leave a dish of cat food and water, "George" ate the catfood.
Okay ladies, let me hear your answers.....LOL!

  • Throw a big sheet over it, grab it firmly , don't freak, George will be a squirmy sqwaky feller! Hold it tightly, run as fast as you can into te open and release the sheet! Sometie having two people helps! GL!

  • LOL. I have no idea, but I will bump your question. I've never had to deal with a seagull before, so I'm clueless. There's no outside door to the patio that you can open? I know first hand how crappy animal control is. They certainly take their time.

  • I'd prob lure the seagull with a fish on a fishing pole or something along those lines to lure him and get him out
