Seagulls Targeted in Reykjavík

The environmental committee of Reykjavík City Council has announced that it will take action on seagulls in Reykjavík and neighboring areas, as they are very prevalent in the city at the moment and many people have complained about them over the last few months, the Icelandic State Broadcasting Service reports.

Pest control officers, who will be given the responsibility of reducing the gull population, say that there have never seen as many seagulls in Reykjavík before. The gull population will be reduced by consultation with specialists and informing the general public about what to do (and not do) when near the birds. In addition, there is to be greater cooperation between local authorities on limiting the gull population.
