Here's a good reason to keep an eye on your pets at all times when outdoors... Especially if they're small.
A British dog owner just learned that lesson the hard way after a seagull swooped down into her back garden, and snatched up her beloved chihuahua in its beak before flying away.
"My partner was in the garden putting the washing out at the time and suddenly he saw it swoop down," Becca Hill wrote on Facebook. "It carried Gizmo a fair way as we couldn't see him anymore. I have no idea if he was dropped, or where he is now."
Becca Hill took to Facebook detailing the Sunday afternoon incident, hoping for Gizmo's safe return.
"Please, please, please, anyone finds a chihuahua he's mine a seagull has took him from my garden," she wrote.
According to reports, birds in that part of England have been known to attack small dogs. A similar incident took place back in 2015... Possibly the same seagull?
