Belle Isle Hazards
A few weeks back, a friend and I were playing petanque on the track surrounding the soccer field over on Belle Isle. The surface is ideal, our soccer teammates were all running late and he had his boules with him, so why not. Not more than ten seconds after my friend had tossed the cochon, a seagull swooped down and snagged it. Between our fits of laughter, the seagull was chased and the cochon retrieved. The question then became what does the rule book say about seagull interference?
