A man says he was held hostage in his own home by an angry seagull that is ‘stalking’ him.
Fishing expert Martyn Green, 62, claims the smoking bird covered him in blood in a recent attack. reports the Daily Star.
Martyn says that while the seagull regularly tries to attack him, his wife Julie leaves her alone.
Martyn described the male as follows: “Every time I go out this seagull comes down and tries me.
“The other day he came down and fell behind me and stabbed me in the head. I was left with blood running down the back of my head.
“It was really painful. And for four or five days I had a bad infection that could have come from the seagull.”
Martyn, who trains fishing trainers, added that the male is just one of many seagulls nesting in his chimney.
He said: “It seems to annoy me, not my wife – he’s got his eye on me.”
James Reseigh of LiveWest Housing Association, which rents the house in Totnes, Devon, said: “We will be using a licensed contractor to look at the most appropriate preventive measures for this particular house.”
Cllr Jonathan Hawkins, of South Hams District Council, said the gull protection would be added “once the current gull nest is gone”.
Elsewhere, a greedy seagull suspected of stealing £300 worth of groceries from Tesco has been caught on camera.
The brash bird is believed to have got away with at least 17kg of food in a year – although its total catch could be even higher.
The recent robbery of the Tesco Extra store in Paignton, Devon was caught on film trudging off with a bag of mini cheddars.
It was seen lurking outside the store before sneaking in through the automatic doors and then reappearing with the pack in its beak.
