Owner Of Dog Snatched By Seagull Trolled With Abusive Messages

Gizmo, a four-year-old pup was playing in the garden when the seagull allegedly swooped down and grabbed the dog.

Gizmo was outside in the garden of Becca Hill's house in the seaside town of Paignton in Devon, southwest England when the tragic event unfolded.

According to reports, Hill's partner witnessed the seagull swoop down and snatch the pup before taking off.

"My partner was in the garden putting the washing out at the time and suddenly he saw it swoop down," Hills told Devon Live.

"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."

Hills issued a missing poster in her quest for help but has since deleted the post after receiving hate online with many users mocking the situation.

One Facebook user said: "I heard the seagull had it with chips."

While another said: "If I find him I'll put him on my BBQ and buy XL hotdog roll."

Gizmo is still missing and several people are helping with the search.
