S.F. Seagull Steals Camera, Goes on Photo Shoot at Crissy Field

This definitely makes for some very interesting bird-watching, the kind you might only see in San Francisco.

This is kind of hard to believe, but a San Francisco seagull purportedly snatched a GoPro camera out of the hands of a French tourist filming the sunset at Crissy Field -- and flew away.

According to the tourist, who loaded the video on YouTube, the bird managed to continue filming the footage of the beautiful skyline as it cruised through the air.

Naturally, the sight of this has drawn skeptics, who say, rather accurately, that this would make a pretty darn great advertisement for GoPro. What do you think: good composition by the bird, or good editing by the tourist?

Of course, this wouldn't be the first time a bird has allegedly flown away with a GoPro camera.

Of course, the "tourist" slathered the camera with bird food before allowing a bird to "steal" it. Not the first time someone has tried this.
