It appears our friend, Steven Seagull, has been in the papers again and this time it is not for stealing ice cream from children. Our rogue seagull friend has only gone and ripped off a man’s right testicle as he sunbathed naked in his back garden, it has been reported in the Suffolk Gazette. Experts believe the fearsome gull mistook the man’s exposed privates for a couple of bird’s eggs and dropped in for a tasty snack. As the man – who has not been named – dozed on his patio in his detached home near Ipswich, the seagull swooped from the sky, and with one bite of its beak ripped away the right testicle.
It has to be said that Seagulls are known for the occasional dive-bomb or cheeky chip thefts but one Seagull has taken it to a whole new level. Pictured above is the offending gull that has managed to get its beak on someone’s false teeth. Here at Jammy Toast we have to confess the gull does strike a remarkable resemblance to our good friend Steven Seagull. Whatever his identity, just how the bird got hold of the dentures remains a mystery but Twitter is full of speculation.
Jammy Toast friend Steven Seagull and his mates have been blamed after postal deliveries had to be abandoned. A postwoman was unable to reach some letter boxes on Tuesday because of “swooping attacks” by the birds. A Royal Mail card posted the following day said the street in Maryport, Cumbria had been “inaccessible due to dangerous conditions” with “seagulls” noted as the reason. Householder Paul Blenkharn said he thought someone was “having a joke”.
Friend of Jammy Toast, Steven Seagull, made a cheeky snatch for fame taking a stolen camera for a tour round the bay. German tourist Martin Lozano had set the camera down on a ledge to capture some shots of Steven Seagull preening himself. But Steven being the inquisitive creature that he is, suddenly got a lot closer than expected and made a quick grab for the photographic equipment. He then took off, with the unsuspecting travellers shouting after him.
One of our friends here at Jammy Toast, Steven Seagull, must be asking himself if he is safe following the news that a man in Northumbria is being investigated by police after he attacked a seagull. So the question has to be asked, given that many view them as vermin, what is the legal status? This question follows the news that a fisherman living in Northumberland posted a picture on Facebook appearing to show him throttling a seagull. In the 11 days since, a petition against his actions has reached 6,000 signatures. The offending image has now been taken down, but police are looking into the matter.
