In July 2019 Rhys Anderson caught a seagull chick, and proceeded to throw him in the air, kick him, and then beat him with a broomstick. Anderson and an as yet unidentified accomplice were caught on CCTV laughing manically as they attacked the helpless birth.

The badly injured chick, who has been named Hoppit, was taken into the care of Athena Wildlife & Bird of Prey Care (Rehab) – Plymouth. Although Hoppit’s broken leg had to be amputated he appears to be coping well.
