Man Arrested For Biting Seagull Who Tried To Steal His McDonald's

You don't mess with a man's Happy Meal!

The fight between man and nature took a bizarre turn recently when a man decided to bite off a seagull that had the galls to try and steal his McDonald's meal. The incident occurred in Plymouth, England, and that too right in front of police officers who arrested the man instead of the seagull who clearly initiated this. 


According to Plymouth Live, The police spokesperson said about the man: "He sunk his teeth into it before throwing it to the floor. Officers had seen the incident and immediately went over and detained and took details from him. Around this time, the man volunteered the information that he was under the influence of drugs and it was decided that he should be taken to Derriford Hospital for treatment. The seagull was clearly injured by the incident but flew off before we were able to check on its welfare. We don't know what happened to it afterwards." 


The poor guy wasn't aware that seagulls were protected by the law and harming them could lead to an arrest. In his defense, it was the seagull who started it but it was unfortunate that he was arrested. 

The Charles Cross Police Team tweeted about the incident saying: "Yesterday we detained a male who attacked & injured a seagul in the city centre. Love them or loath them, seaguls are protected under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981. The bird flew away before we could check it's welfare. The crime is under review."
