Seagulls Are Stealing GoPro Cameras, Improving Vacation Movies

The seagull uprising has begun, and it seems the flock of birds is determined to capture beautiful moments via stolen GoPro cameras.

It’s not really a sound strategy when it comes to world domination, but these are birds we are talking about here.

Internet watering hole, Digg, spotted a couple instances of seagulls absconding with tourists’ expensive video cameras.

Let’s start with the following video that comes from, according to Google Translate, Cies Islands in Spain.

Next, we head on over to San Francisco, near a portion of the city that overlooks the Golden Gate Bridge in a video captured back in 2012.

At one point, a particular seagull was bored with the footage one human was taking, so it took the filming duties into its own beak.

Stick around for the end of the video when the seagull captures a beautiful moment as it flies away. This is one amazing director that understands the importance of framing.

Thankfully, for both GoPro owners, the cameras were left unharmed after a short jaunt around the area.

This should serve as a warning to the rest of you tourists. Don’t leave your GoPro unattended, because birds are into extreme filmmaking as much as you are.
