A SPCA in the UK is facing an unsual job, as legions of seagulls are getting on the piss and causing chaos.
The RSPCA centre at West Hatch near Taunton, Somerset, has had up to 30 of the birds in the last two weeks, all of them stinking of booze, the Telegraph reports.
Locals reckon they've been drinking leftover empties on the beach, while others believe the birds are more crafty and are actually getting involved with beer brewing by-products.
"They all seem to have ingested some sort of grain - possibly from a brewery - that appears to have made them inebriated," local vet David Couper told the Telegraph.
In their drunken state the birds can't fly.
"We had a couple of isolated cases last year," Couper told the Telegraph.
"But this year there has been a spate of cases with birds from east Devon, Dorset and Somerset.
Some of the birds have been found unconscious or staggering and all were reeking of alcohol.
Forget the cat up the tree. Firefighters were called to assist one drunk seagull, who was seen lurching about dangerously on a roof.
By the time they arrived the bird had fallen off the roof and was sitting on the ground shaking his head.
"He then tried to fly and he nearly hit me in the face," said RSPCA manager Virgil Turner.
I caught him and he threw up all over me and he reeked of beer.
Some of the birds died and others have been left seriously ill by their piss up.
Mr Couper told the Telegraph a number of the birds came right after some rest and rehydration - sounds about right. Give the salty bastards a powerade.
