A Cardiff, Wales, man who slammed a seagull into a wall after it tried to steal his chips has been sentenced to a 12-week curfew and a fine.
John Llewellyn Jones, 64, was visiting the town of Weston when the animal attempted to steal his chip. Jones then grabbed the bird, slamming it against a wall. The seagull did not survive the encounter.
Jones will have to pay £750 in costs and £85 in victim surcharge in addition to the curfew.
