TIVERTON, England, June 11 (UPI) -- A sneaky seagull attempted to steal a British woman's cellphone after she set it down to record video at a local beach.
Chloe Rainey shared video of the attempted theft to Facebook. The seagull can be seen approaching the phone before snatching it with its beak and attempting to run away.
"Well at least my phone didn't get stolen by a seagull today..." Rainey wrote.
Rainey can be heard saying that the seagull is coming to steal her phone just before the bird takes several pecks at it and attempts to make a getaway.
The footage then shows the seagull's feet as it attempts to flee before dropping the phone when Rainey said she hit the bird with her jumper and recovered the phone.
