A man in Cornwall, England, was arrested this week after biting a seagull who tried to steal his Big Mac.
Yes, the man was on drugs.
The 26-year-old man “claimed he was being attacked for his McDonald’s meal and in response, he grabbed the bird and bit it,” reports Cornwall Live.
“He sunk his teeth into it before throwing it to the floor,” a police spokesperson told the site. “Officers had seen the incident and immediately went over and detained and took details from him.”
The man told police officers he was “under the influence of drugs” and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
“The seagull was clearly injured by the incident but flew off before we were able to check on its welfare,” the rep said. “We don’t know what happened to it afterward.”
Seagulls are notoriously aggressive around food but are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981.
Only a man on drugs could actually grab a seagull with his bare hands in the first place.
