Gulls usually do not nest near human habitation, but thanks to the hospitality of the Mandurah residents, they began to come here and breed. That was once a success story, until a cat appeared.
According to research by Greenwell and colleagues published in Animal magazine, a single cat in Mandurah has been harassing the nesting area of 220 gulls for weeks. It is responsible for the deaths of 6 adult gulls and 40 young.
Apparently, this protected area is no longer safe. All the gulls have left, leaving a patch of land left with empty nests, dead bodies, dried blood stains, and the regretful indignation of the Mandurah residents.
