It is a funny story that is causing a stir on social networks in the UK in recent days. After a man working at a grocery store recorded the moment when “criminals” stole things in broad daylight, the incident attracted even more attention in the media.
The crook here is not a tall, muscular man but just a seagull but “misses” with a petty theft nature. It calmly maintained its habit for more than 1 year, some people saw it but couldn’t do anything.
Even the staff at the Tesco Extra grocery store in Paignton, Devon, UK, got rid of this thief, so they named him Steven. Instead of diving into the sea to catch fish to eat through the day, this seagull likes to go to the supermarket to steal things. From sandwiches to savory snacks – nothing is safe when Steven shows up.
Most recently, it was recorded by a supermarket employee when he was taking out a bag of snacks from the supermarket.
This dodgy bird lurked outside the store before sneaking in through the automatic door and then returning with a packet of snacks in its mouth.
Liam Brown, a Tesco employee who captured video of the seagull stealing stuff, told LADbible: “I’ve seen it stalking here a few times. This time, it even jumped on the lid of the shifter. – the hood of my car so I decided to take out my phone to take a video. and run away with a pack of Mini Cheddars”.
One shopper also reported that she saw Steven fly away with a bag of Doritos before sharing the spoils with his friends on the roof. It sounds like a very special moment.
“I told the cashier that the bird had just stolen something and she said with the same calm as she’s used to the scene, ‘Oh, he likes that stuff’.”
“It happens at least once a day, usually three times a day,” Liam explained to Metro. “We constantly had to chase it away because we didn’t want to lose the goods. There was always someone to watch.”
Despite their best efforts, the appearance of this seagull gradually became a common occurrence. The brazen seagull is said to have stolen at least 17kg of food in a year (equivalent to nearly 9 million VND if converted into money). The total volume of goods it stole could be even higher.
A few years ago, The Guardian also published an odd story involving a seagull. Accordingly, this animal calmly “stealed” Becca Hill’s chihuahua (24 years old). At that time, the small dog (4 years old) was resting in his owner’s garden in Devon (England).
After that, Ms. Becca had to go online to ask people for help to find the pet’s whereabouts. A sad ending happened when the dog was never found.
According to Seagulls Are Not Evil, if a seagull becomes aggressive, it has good reason to do so. “It’s usually to protect their young or their nest, so if a seagull attacks you, you’re most likely too close to its young.”
Research has concluded that seagulls are more likely to “eat” human food very quickly. Madeleine Goumas at the University of Exeter, UK, explains that the idea for her research came from observing how seagulls act around people.
