Marquette University tries to manage large sea gull population

Marquette University is working to humanely manage a sea gull population on the campus that is worrying some students.

“Beyond having to study inside because of fear or noise, I don't think that there are many real negatives to them,” said Alex Wheaton, a freshman in the College of Arts & Sciences. “Granted, I hate them, and they annoy me to no end, but I get over it.”

A Twitter account called @MUseagulls was created with a bio of \"Patrolling the skies above @MarquetteU and Milwaukee. Cover your heads.\"

The account converses with other users complaining about the birds on campus.

The university said it is working with an experienced environmental firm to humanely manage the birds. There was no comment when asked the name of the firm or for further details.
