Bold Seagull Snatches Camera From SF Tourist, Shoots Golden Gate Sunset

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A seagull captured some stunning images of a San Francisco sunset after making off with a camera being used by a French tourist.

The tourist is identified on YouTube as Nathalie Rollandin. She was filming the sunset at the Golden Gate Bridge near the entrance to the popular Crissy Field walking path when the seagull stanched her GoPro camera and flew away. After skimming over the water and filming for about 60 seconds, the gull dropped the camera on a walkway next to the St. Francis Yacht Club.

The 26-year-old said in her comments that she ran around the beach after the gull and asked a tourist if she had seen a seagull with a camera in its mouth, which drew a strange look.

She eventually recovered the camera and uploaded the video to YouTube.
