The children were riding a ride! Those gulls ATTACKED!

Seagulls aren’t afraid to get up close and personal with humans as anyone who’s had their slice of pizza swiped while on a Jersey Shore boardwalk can attest to. Yet one teen girl had an especially close encounter with the bold bird while on a ride at a Wildwood theme park.

Kiley Holman, 13, of Weatherly, Pennsylvania, was celebrating her friend Georgia Reed’s 14th birthday at Adventure Pier back on July 6. The teens decided to go on the Springshot ride which Kiley had been on before. As the girls screamed while being launched more than 75 feet into the air, Kiley noticed a seagull flying toward her.

“It was going the opposite way and came right back at me,” she told NBC10.

Video captured the bird flying into Kiley’s face and momentarily latching onto her. She said the bird’s wings were on the ride while its beak was on her neck.

“At first I didn’t know what to do, then I just pulled it off,” she said.

Kiley quickly threw the bird off of her and continued to enjoy the ride. Thankfully neither Kiley nor the bird were seriously hurt.

Afterwards, Kiley and Georgia bought the video. Georgia’s father then posted it on YouTube and it quickly went viral.

“A lot of people shared it and asked if I was okay and if the bird was okay,” Kiley said.

Kiley told NBC10 she loves animals and had always wanted to catch a seagull. Hopefully next time she’ll be able to do that with her hands, rather than her face.

Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?

Why did you type "attacked" in all caps? It's not exactly a riveting story and typing in all caps doesn't make it more interesting.
