Baby Gulls are being creamed on Saint John Streets
"A Saint John woman is pleading with drivers not to run over baby seagulls on the city's uptown streets.
Trudy Clark said she's noticed a number of young gulls this year on Germain Street, on the block between between King and Union streets.
Two of the birds were recently struck by cars, she said. One was killed and the other was injured, unable to fly.
Clark said the birds "can't quite manage the uptown area."
"Perhaps we could just shout out to people using that block to beware of these new baby seagulls," she said.
"It would be a lovely thing if we could show a little bit respect for these new birds."
Jim Wilson, a birder in Quispamsis, said the birds are likely herring gulls, the most common gulls in Saint John and off the coast.
