Who is this nutter from the RSPCA that keeps calling the fire service to rescue bloody seagulls and is he/she getting the bill.

If it carries on I want the proportion of my council tax bill that goes toward the fire service refunding, because Im not paying for the system to be abused in this way. Its worse than kids making hoax calls.

Why cant the watch commander just refuse to attend on the grounds of sheer cost.

Here I go again just suppose fireman got injured or killed in this rescue what price 

the compensation to him or his family and who would pay?

If I was a fireman I would refuse the task or put the liability for injuries etc

with the RSPCA.

Better stop otherwise my comments could get me barred

Just suppose a house fire occurs with lives in danger whilst our firemen and the

engine is rescueing a bloody seagull for the RSPCA.

Do they ever think?

Do you think the RSPCA or the Fire Service might read these comments and provide a response that justifies their actions or are they silent organisations like others

I'm sure the fire service must be aware of any situation but as far as the RSPCA

are concerned they can't see any farther than a seagulls arse.

Does nature itself have an answer to the seagull problem. Like a bigger bird of prey that can kill and partially eat them . Seriously do they have any natural threat to their existance
