I got the following warning in my email and thought I should share it here. Make sure you click on the picture to view the gang in operation Police are urging visitors to the city center to be especially vigilant for a new gang operating a slick routine that is aimed at stealing from unwary persons. They say that the gang usually comprises of four members. While the three younger ones, all appearing to be cute and innocent, divert their "mark" (or intended target) with a show of friendliness and fun, the fourth, the eldest of this gang of criminals - sneaks in from behind the person's back to expertly rifle undetected through their pockets and bags for any valuables being carried. Hope you find this as informative as I did :)

Around here we really have to, lots of fowl creatures to prey upon us; ducks, egrets, ibis, and so many others :)

Where I live, if anything is going to mess with you it tends to be gulls. Once I saw a family eating at a picnic table, and they had a little boy with them that couldn't have been more than 3. Every time he tried to pick up something to eat it, the gulls would swoop in and take it away. I felt so sorry for the poor child, and I couldn't believe his parents were just laughing about it. Poor kid could have lost fingers or something!

I've seen gulls come down and steal hot dogs right off the grill. Fire going and everything and they don't care. You do have to be careful with them I agree.

That is so adorable!! I wonder if the money is photoshopped in or if it's the real deal. It's adorable either way though. Thanks for the cute pic. The story really had me going in the email notification. LOL!

Wow, the criminals these days are becoming more and more brazen. We recently had a crime involving young girls, seducing young men, then the head guys would beat them and take their belongings. It's a sick, sick world. How do our young people get sucked into these things? Make ya wonder. Thank you for sharing that.

I thought it was too cute not to share. Of course my neice when she was very little did that to us, she took money out of the purse and was trying to hand it out. Thankfully no one took it before we realized. Can't take your eyes off them for a second.
