Becca and her partner have launched a desperate search for Gizmo, urging local residents to keep an eye out for the small brown and white doggo.

The four-year-old pooch known as Gizmo was just chilling in Becca Hill's backyard in Devon, England when she says a seagull swooped down and grabbed the dog with its beak and flew off.

She said: "My partner was in the garden putting the washing out at the time and suddenly he saw it swoop down".

The 24-year-old is hoping the power of social media will help bring Gizmo home and reunite the beloved pup with her two other chihuahuas.

But then I read the terrifying story of Gizmo, the small dog stolen from his backyard by a very bold seagull in the United Kingdom over the weekend, and now I'm questioning everything.

It then carried Gizmo out of sight, Hill now fearing that the pooch may have been dropped or injured.

Ms Hill said her six-year-old daughter is "really upset" and "missing her dog".

Sudan opposition voices concern over power-sharing deal
Abul Fadel said the unrest had slashed his overall sales by 20-25 percent - or as much as 40 percent for some items. But protesters kept up the pressure after his fall, rallying against the military council that took his place.

The freaky incident was witnessed by Becca's partner on Sunday afternoon at the house in Paignton, Devon.

Hill and her family live in the seaside town of Paignton, Devon, and though seagulls are common there, attacks like this one are incredibly rare.

Ms Hill added that she had never expected anything like this to happen to little Gizmo, despite the fact that previous incidents of seagulls snatching dogs had been recorded in the area.

But spare a thought for a woman in the United Kingdom who is distraught after a seagull flew off with her goddamn pet dog.

Niki Wayne, 57, found the birds pecking tiny Bella to death after the pup pushed open a door and got out.

The RSPCA told The Sun that this is "not typical gull behaviour" and called the attack "extremely upsetting".
