A’s deploy secret weapon in the war against flocks of brazen seagulls

If you’ve been to an A’s game — or a Giants, Raiders or 49ers game — you’ve seen them. You’ve heard them. They may have driven you to cover, or to the dry cleaner.

What is it Mark Twain once said? “Everybody talks about the seagulls, but nobody does anything about them.”

The A’s are doing something about them.

Seagulls have long been a presence (and nuisance) at Bay Area sporting events, intuitively timing their entrance for the ninth inning and fourth quarter, the better to feed off discards.
