Hawks are sent to Cannes to drive gulls away

Another weirdness is going on in Cannes amid the annual Cannes Film Festival and this time, a certain hotel is deploying hawks to drive seagulls away from causing nuisance at the festival.

The Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez sent out a group of trained hawks to fend off seagulls who may be hovering a little too close to its outdoor dining areas. Some say, it's their environmentally friendly solution to the gulls who are so used to humans that they don;t hesitate to come and help themselves. The birds are trained to fly above the hotel at an altitude of about 150m.

The Cannes film festival runs for 12 days and has brought some of Hollywood's finest to town as well as thousands of visitors.
