Shoplifting seagull in Scotland

A seagull in Scotland has developed the habit of stealing chips from a neighborhood shop.

The seagull waits until the shopkeeper isn’t looking, and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos.

Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds.

The seagull’s shoplifting started early this month when he first swooped into the store in Aberdeen, Scotland, and helped himself to a bag of chips. Since then, he’s become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.

Customers have begun paying for the seagull’s stolen bags of chips because they think it’s so funny.

  1. I heard about a seagull who stole money from gas pumps. The people who bought them thought someone was stealing from them and they were losing thousands of dollars so they put up a video camera. the next day they found out it was just a bunch of birds. what was really cool was that there were several birds that would actually take turns stealing from the machine.
