A cull's being demanded by a councillor in Worcester's ongoing efforts to try and cut the number of gulls in the city.
For several years the city council has been trying to reduce the population of gulls as they're seen as a nuisance and have even been known to attack people.
Today, the owners of a pet Chihuahua said a gull had seized and flown off with the dog in Devon.
Spikes, gull-proof litter bins and replacing eggs with fake ones have all been considered or used by Worcester City Council, which claims there are now fewer gulls compared with a decade ago.
But residents and businesses in Lower Wick have told BBC Hereford and Worcester they believe there are more than ever and are calling for stronger action.
They're vicious, flying rats and they need to be culled. All the existing policies we've tried, the 'be ever so nice to gulls' policy, trying to get them to go away, they've all failed."
