Devon Live reports that Becca Hill, a 24-year-old Devon resident and owner of a four-year-old chihuahua named Gizmo, watched on in horror on Sunday (UK time) as a large seagull swooped down into her yard and snatched up her dog, flying away with him in its beak.

"Please, please, please, anyone finds a chihuahua he's mine, a seagull took him from my garden".

Gizmo had been enjoying the weather in the back garden of Becca Hill's house in Devon when it was snatched by the seagull.

The dog, a male and brown and white in coulour is still missing.

It then carried Gizmo out of sight, Hill now fearing that the pooch may have been dropped or injured.

Hill and her family live in the seaside town of Paignton, Devon, and though seagulls are common there, attacks like this one are incredibly rare.
