‘Seagull picked up all my donkeys,’ says Blackpool man


Seagulls are in big trouble again after a Blackpool beach trader watched all his donkeys get lifted up and flown away.

Blackpool local, Peter Thape, who runs the donkey rides on the beach, couldn’t believe his eyes as the cheeky seagull picked up one donkey at a time over a crazed 15 minute period.

Thape was left with a queue of unhappy children as the seagull took both ‘Daisy’ and ‘Mister Cum’ with his last fly by.

‘That’s my livelihood gone,’ said Thape.

‘Still, the donkeys will probably have a better life now that they’ve been eaten,’ added Thape.
