These Angry Birds need to be stopped

San Dimas High students enter the parking lot with fear in their eyes and a sense of urgency in their steps as they try to dodge the persistent seagulls that have taken over the campus.
It seems that the grounds of San Dimas High have turned into a big game of Angry Birds and the students have become the pigs just waiting for the aggravated bird’s wrath.
“I really enjoy playing Angry Birds, but only when I get to be the bird and not the poor pig,” senior Chandler Pope said.
Seagulls tend to gravitate toward places of flat ground like the parking lot and the quad, which means there are limited places for students to take cover from the incredibly accurate devil birds.
Just like us they love to eat and by eating so much creates ammunition for the game. Sadly unlike us, seagulls do not have port-a-potties; so often they choose to release the ammunition on one of the moving targets below.
“Yes, they are peaceful birds to watch flying in the air, but why can’t they find a nice, clean place to free their stomachs? Why do they choose our vehicles, especially my car! I hate them!” junior Philip Sanad exclaimed.
Rather than having to buy a whole new outfit every time an angry bird drops its bomb on you, there is a very simple solution to all of the madness and it will only cost you a few more steps.
“Throw trash away in cans, take their food source away and they will move on. Don’t litter and they most likely will leave,” Wildlife Officer Leon of the San Gabriel Human Society said.
In an effort to eliminate the Seagulls winning any more points and to avoid spending the day using your binder as a cover up for the gift the bird left you, just throw the rest of the Chipotle burrito in the trashcan located by the front gate of the school. You walk by there anyway.
