One restaurant owner in Australia appears to have found the perfect solution to stop seagulls bothering diners.
Australian restaurant owner Toby Evans has taken the unusual step of handing out powerful water pistols to customers eating outside.
And the moment a peasky seagull gets anywhere near their dinner, a quick blast of water from the gun on each table soon sends them packing.
Speaking to local news outlet, Nine Network television, the owner of 3Sheets restaurant in Perth, Australia said: “It was bad, it was bad. I think it’s the time of year, now they are getting cheekier and cheekier.”
