Cedric the seagull has been causing chaos for a family on the Isle of Wight

A huge dog-bullying seagull is terrorizing a neighborhood’s pets and causing chaos in gardens.

The threatening gull – named Cedric by fed-up locals – has been picking on a border terrier, stealing her squeaky toys and attacking her water bowl in her garden.

Its reign of terror over family has left them needing help with the bird known to ‘tease’ the animals as they watch from behind patio doors.

Cedric flies down to the garden in Sandown, Isle of Wight, every day, drinks from Peg’s water bowl and then flips it over.

Peg takes her toys outside with her but often forgets to bring them back inside, giving Cedric the perfect opportunity to swoop down and steal them from the garden.

In the month-long harassment, owner Mark Tutton has seen the gull steal soft toys and balls and several of Peg’s squeaky toys.

The mischievous bird has also been attacking Mr Tutton’s garden, with flowers ripped out of pots and painted stones also being robbed.

Wising up to the crafty gull, 15 week old Peg now keeps her toys close to her bed, and if she hears the dreaded name ‘Cedric’, her ears perk up.

Mr Tutton, a 60-year-old builder, said: “This all started happening in the last month, Cedric has been hanging around for ages but it’s only recently he’s started doing this.

“A neighbor started calling him Cedric. They have a couple of bird feeders in their garden so he gets fed there every day and then comes in our garden.

“He comes in the garden, has a drink out of Peg’s bowl and then tips it over.

“We know he’s been because we either hear the bowl go everywhere or we go out there and find a big wet patch.

“He also comes and pecks on the patio door, he’ll come up after knocking the water over and stare at Peg – it’s like he’s teasing her.

“When he comes up to the patio door he looks bigger than Peg.

“Peg has started to react to Cedric standing in the window and will go to the patio doors and watch him like a hawk.

“She doesn’t go after him, she just watches him through the door. Then whenever we open the door he flies off.

“If Cedric sees something in the garden that’s colourful, he’ll come down and grab it. He has been taking her toys – he picked up the squeaky chicken toy and flew up onto next door’s roof squeaking it.

“He flies right off with her toys and people have told us they’ve seen him drop them out on the main road.

“Peg has a couple of favorite toys like her cuddly ones that go in her bed every night so we make sure she doesn’t take them outside.

“We go out there sometimes and we know Cedric’s been because all the flowers in the pots have been pulled out.

“We even had some painted stones in the garden and he flew off with those. I dread to think what would happen if he dropped one of those on someone’s head or conservatory.”
