Would you have challenged this idiot?

I'm pretty sure I would have said something to him. The report says that onlookers were horrified but they all just walked on by.

Shocking video shows a man who horrified tourists in Torquay when he grabbed a seagull and held it upside down by the neck for over a minute before flinging it over the pier wall.

Holidaymakers and locals walking on the promenade beside the Princess Theatre watched as the man grabbed one of a flock of gulls which swooped on his doughnut on the sea wall.

He managed to grab one by the neck, held it until it dropped his doughnut which he then picks up and starts eating again. Onlookers gasped as he then flung the gull over the sea wall.

No I wouldn't have confronted him, he sounds like a proper psycho. I would have checked to make sure the seagull was ok though. I hope he gets really sick and ill from eating the doughnut again. Days of staring at the U-bend should sort him out. Nasty piece of work.

Gosh that was a long time he was holding that bird, wicked old so-and-so.
Pity the other birds didn't all attack the bloke, that would have soon sorted him.

Re: Would you have challenged this idiot?

Challenged the SOB? Bloody right I would. I can't abide cruelty to living things.

Come to think of I'd probably kicked him on the ankle and straightway deliberately fallen over, had the police come, and played the poor old codger beaten up by the thug card.

There's more ways to kill a cat than kicking it up the arse.

Could do with laying off the doughnuts, obvious who is bird brained. Not sure I would have challenged him.

Re: Would you have challenged this idiot?

There is no such thing as a seagull. The ones in the video were probably Herring Gulls & young ones too.
They can carry disease so I hope he was very ill as well, what a nasty person. He shouldn't have put his bag on the wall, it's an open invitation to gulls.

If he had not been eating his doughnut en plain aire, he would not have been bombarded by the gulls in the first place.

I believe Gulls are protected so hopefully the police will prosecute.

You're right, they are.
Bet the cops don't do anything though.
