Default Devon girl 'really upset' after Seagull snatches her chihuahua from garden

[A six-year-old girl is "really upset" after a seagull dropped into her garden and made off with her miniature chihuahua in its beak.
The child's mother, Becca Hill, said her partner was putting some washing out in Paignton, Devon, when he suddenly saw the bird "swoop down".
"It carried Gizmo a fair way as we couldn't see him anymore," she told Devon Live.]


I guess the Bird was Hungry

I hate seagulls. They are constantly swooping down at me at the moment wherever I walk. Con's of living in a seaside town. There are hundreds of them

We have a chihuahua, how on earth does a seagull get one in its beak ? the dogs are tiny but are they sure it was a seagull ? I hope the little fella is found safe but seems unlikely,wish for a miracle.

Some gulls are huge and they've been known to eat rodents, rabbits and even pigeons whole.

** warning - gull swallowing a rabbit, nothing you wouldn't see in a wildlife doc but I know some people don't like this stuff **

They are small dogs, should be protected from predators like rabbits or guinea pigs

That seagull would never **** with my late mastiff

Weeell... yes, but gulls as they are now aren't exactly "circle of life". Thanks to humans and abundant food waste, there are far more of them than there naturally "should" be, and they're bigger, and getting less timid / more aggressive. After the toy dogs they're coming for us next I reckon .

I'm confused as to how this is possible. Like if it was a guinea pig or a hamster then sure but I can't imagine a gull carrying off with a dog, even a toy dog breed.

Oh, I feel bad for those dogs. Bred to be tiny regardless of health issues. It should be illegal along with breeding pugs to have squashed noses.

Breeding dogs to be like that is horrible, they will have countless health issues thoughout their lives.

Also, seagulls are bastards.
