Sea Gull Walks Behind Anchor During Australian News Report (VIDEO)

One news station in Australia received a lesson in the perils of using a live camera backdrop for your anchor's report when a sea gull, seemingly giant but really just close to the camera, loomed right behind the anchor and then strolled across the scene. To his credit the anchor calmly continued his report about organized crime.

The anchor Peter Hitchener told a radio station afterward: "I was reading away and it was a serious story, and I suddenly thought 'Oh my gosh, that seagull's back again', because we had a bit of a problem last night."
