A man was left injured after he was attacked by a seagull.
The father of four children of England, said that he was left in agony after a seagull attacked and knocked him off his bicycle.
48-year-old Allan Plaister of St. Paul’s, Bristol, was taken to the hospital after he suffered injuries to his hand, leg and groin.
Plaister, who works as a security guard, said that the massive bird dived onto his chest before it attacked his private parts.
“I would hate to imagine if a child was hit,” he said.
Expert Peter Rock said that seagulls usually only attack when they are trying to protect their offspring and to snatch food.
Plaister, who is six feet tall and weighs 14 stone (196 pounds), was left lying on the ground in agony before people came to his aid.
The incident took place around 6:30 p.m. Plaister was treated at a hospital and released with crutches.
