A six-year-old girl is "really upset" after a seagull dropped into her garden and made off with her miniature chihuahua in its beak.

The child's mother, Becca Hill, said her partner was putting some washing out in Paignton, Devon, when he suddenly saw the bird "swoop down".

"It carried Gizmo a fair way as we couldn't see him anymore," she told Devon Live.

"I have no idea if he was dropped or where he is now."

Although her daughter did not see Gizmo being taken away, Ms Hill, 24, said she was "really upset" and "missing her dog".


"Please, please, please, anyone finds a chihuahua he's mine, a seagull took him from my garden," Ms Hill wrote on Facebook.

After an appeal was posted on, a contributor called Captain said: "A lot of gardens have been checked and cleared along with rooftops, garage roofs and trees."
