Independent MP John Woodcock, 40, wants red tape protecting the “menacing” birds to be cut to stop them from attacking residents and pets. 

He said: “The seagull issue has been a menace for years. Putting contraceptives in food has been effective in some areas. 

“An alternative is replacing their eggs with fakes.” 

The Barrow and Furness representative continued to tell The Sun: “Let local communities take action against the fat, aggressive urban sods that dive bomb us, crap on our cars steal food out of our hands and terrorise our pets.”

His comments come as fears grow for Gizmo after a leg bone – similar in size to the pet’s – was spotted on a roof that had been taken over by vicious seagulls. 

Experts are now examining the grisly remains to see whether it belongs to the pooch. 

Gizmo’s devastated owner Rebecca Hill said called the birds “pests” that could cause further heartbreak as they search for food. 

She said: “It all happened so quickly, one minute he was in the garden and then there was a yelp and Ashley saw him being carried off by the seagull. 

“I love animals but these birds are real pests and can cause real damage, but this time of year the seagulls are looking for food for their young and obviously saw Gizmo as an easy picking.”

A fierce-looking gull was even pictured surveying the scene and seemingly on the lookout for fresh prey on the street the pooch was taken from. 

Shortly after four-year-old Gizmo was nabbed, Rebecca launched a desperate appeal for the pup, which later sparked a Devon-wide dig hunt. 

In the following days, the shop worker was forced to deny faking the story after she received sick taunts from trolls, including one who claimed to have roasted Gizmo.
