The Blackpool Zoo, an animal sanctuary in Lancashire, England, is looking for 5 people to dress up as birds and chase away seagulls.

Seagulls are a constant problem at this zoo and are often called a “nuisance”. There is a need to protect both animals and visitors from potential harm caused by the seagulls’ scavenging. They not only steal the animal’s food but they are also known to swipe unsuspecting visitors’ snacks. 

All you have to do for this job is dress like a bird and chase seagulls away.  According to cnn.com, “We need to do what we can to keep the seagulls away from our main visitor dining areas, which is why we are looking for a team of people to join our Visitor Services team as ‘Seagull Deterrents, Blackpool Zoo wrote in the job advertisement.” The requirements for the job position are you must be friendly, outgoing, energetic, flexible, and have good endurance.
