A dog owner has been left distraught after her beloved pet Chihuahua was grabbed by a seagull and taken away.
Gizmo had been enjoying the weather in the back garden of his London home when his owner says was snatched by the seagull. The bird swooped down and grabbed the tiny four-year-old pooch in its beak according to Ms Hill. The four-year-old dog was carried away by the seagull and has not been seen since.
"My partner was in the garden putting the washing out at the time and suddenly he saw it swoop down.'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."
The dog owner that she had never expected anything like this to happen to Gizmo, despite the fact that previous incidents of seagulls snatching dogs had been recorded in the area. Gizmo is still missing and the couple have no idea where he is, or if he has been harmed by the seagull.
