Reality mimics fiction when an elementary school was placed on lockdown after dive-bombing seagulls were threatening to hurt the children.  Ripping a page right out of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, aggressive seagulls, which are nesting on the school roof began swooping down to pick up chicks that had fallen to the ground. The seagulls, fearing the children, teachers and parents were predators, began to defend their chicks. The situation became so serious that parents were frightened to drop their own children off at school. The kids have already banned from ten playground because of the brash birds. School officials have contacted bird groups, who have relocated the chicks away from the school after the permits needed t move them were approved by the city government.
