Don’t Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

This gull thought the surf clam was going to be an easy meal. Little did he know the clam had other ideas. It clamped down on the gulls beak, trapping it and anchoring it to the ground. When Park Manager Nina Coleman found them the clam was frozen from the fridgid temps and the gull was tired from being anchored down all night. The two were brought to Cape Wildlife for a health evaluation and two days later the gull was released. Unfortunately, the clam died from the interaction but it was fed to the gull. This gull will think twice before he tries to eat shellfish again.
