Mechanical hunters at Olympic Basin

In order to deter seagulls from the Olympic Basin to ensure a better water quality, mechanical hunters have been strategically located around the Basin. Since this equipment makes a loud sound it could cause a surprise effect when in function, but it is harmless. Thank you for your comprehension.
