GBBG trying to swallow the impossible, RW

This Greater Black-backed Gull spent over an hour trying to swallow an enormous Rainbow Trout corpse. Most of the fishes body was like a thick decaying sock but it was still connected to a huge skull. The gull was able to swallow the whole body but not the skull. It would then walk around with the skull hanging out of it's bill before eventually sicking the whole thing up and trying again. Truly disgusting but entertaining at the same time.
