The pet parents of a chihuahua are heartbroken after a seagull swooped into their yard and carried off their furbaby. See what experts are saying about the attack…
Mirror.co.uk says that Gizmo the chihuahua was in the yard with his mom in the UK when a seagull swooped in and grab the dog in its beak. The gull then flew away with the dog and Gizmo hasn’t been seen since. Gizmo’s parents are devastated by what happened.
A seagull expert said that it was probably a ‘black backed’ gull which is typically a larger breed of seagull.
Although seagull attacks on dogs are rare, the expert offered this advice:
“If you know you have gulls nesting on the roof or a neighbour’s roof and you have a really small dog then just keep an eye on it, especially if it is an enclosed space like a garden where a young gull can be backed into a corner.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Gizmo’s parents. 🙁
