Join the Moose Morning Show every weekday morning, just before 6am, we hand out our 'Knucklehead of the Day' award.

Today going to a NH man accused of kicking a seagull that tried to eat his cheeseburger at Hampton Beach has been fined $124.

This guy said he had just returned from getting a cheeseburger and fries and was sitting on the sand, when a seagull got to the burger. He spun around with his leg to shoo one away, but struck the bird. He said it was a simple mistake. A witness said it appeared the bird’s leg was injured and that it struggled to fly away.

Seagulls are protected under federal law.
