Um, a Seagull Swooped Down and Flew Off With Someone's Chihuahua

By

This is not the kind of story you read every day. I don't really think of seagulls as birds of prey. Sure, these beach pigeons will go after pretty much anything edible, and they're not shy around people, but I haven't considered that seagulls would snatch poor pets right out of their yards.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what recently happened to one truly unlucky family in the town of Paignton in Devon, England. Becca Hill's tiny chihuahua Gizmo was hanging out in the yard outside her house when a massive seagull swooped down and flew away with Gizmo in his beak.
