Which, if you've seen it, means this is pretty darn bad!
A study whose results were recently released found that seagulls - those playful winged scamps that flich food from us at the beach - have played an interesting role in the spread of resistant bacteria throughout the globe. Here's a tidbit from the study's author:
" . . . the resistance factors identified in the seagull feces match ones that cause highly resistant infections in humans — not only in hospitals, but in everyday life, where the route of infection is often unclear."
So there, and I have now added seagulls to a list of creatures - including skunks, rabid badgers, and dragons - that I take pains to avoid.
