The birds are taking out the electrical lines. Times get tough, perhaps they were planning to steal the copper wire so they could buy some french fries.
An errant seagull knocked out electricity service to about 2,000 PG&E customers in Oakland on Tuesday, according to the Oakland Tribune.
It seems the bird flew into a set of wires near 4th and Franklin Streets at 6:45 a.m., the newspaper reported.
The gull was electrocuted and died when the bird’s two wings made contact with two wires, turning the avian creature into a live circuit.
