Seagull swoops on garden and flies away with chihuahua

22 Juillet, 2019, 10:10 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

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.

Becca's heartfelt plea for help in finding her dog.

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.

Gizmo is still missing and the couple have no idea where he is, or if he has been harmed by the seagull. Anyone with information is asked to call 07774 724 797.

The RSPCA told The Sun that this is "not typical gull behaviour" and called the attack "extremely upsetting".

The latest attack comes just days after the Tele was out and about asking people their thougths on menacing gulls in the city - with our poll showing more than 79% of readers backing a gull cull to reduce numbers.

Another incident occurred past year, when a woman was hospitalised, after a gull "walloped" her on the head.

Ms Hill added that she had never expected anything like this to happen to little Gizmo, despite the fact that previous incidents of seagulls snatching dogs had been recorded in the area.
