Curry-Covered Seagulls

Mike in the UK gave us a heads up about a curious case of weird-news déjà vu.

A few weeks ago news outlets reported that a seagull had turned bright orange after apparently falling into a vat of curry. But rewind to 2016, and an almost identical incident occurred when a seagull turned bright orange after falling into a container of chicken tikka masala "while trying to scavenge a piece of meat from a food factory bin."

And I've managed to find a third incident, that also happened in 2016, involving a seagull in Newport, south Wales that fell into a vat of tandoori sauce.

So how often exactly do seagulls fall into vats of curry? Are there even more cases out there?

That about does it for my ordering "chicken" curry when I'm in the U.K. from now on.
