PCSO Attacked By Angry Mob (Of Pigeons)
The guidance has been clear; nobody is allowed to gather in groups of more than two people unless you are all from the same household.
But a ‘flock’ of pigeons clearly think that the rules do not apply to them during this national emergency.
PCSO Thompson was on patrol in Weston Park when she answered a call to help from a distressed citizen who was out getting their daily dose of physical exercise.
The citizen had alerted PCSO Thompson to the fact that a pigeon had got its head caught in a plastic bag that had been discarded in a park.
As the pigeon-wrangler-turned-PCSO tried to help the frightened bird, a member of the public passed her some bread to give to the distressed pigeon in an attempt to calm it down.
But just as sharks can smelt the tiniest drop of blood in the sea within a five nautical mile radius of the blood droplet, pigeons from all around the district became aware of the bread, and a feeding frenzy began.
Thankfully, PCSO Hizam came to the rescue of his colleague by immediately taken a photograph to capture the event and to keep a digital record of what went down in the park.
Over 20 birds were given words of advice regarding the rules concerning social distancing. The status of the bird-in-a-bag is not known.
Stay safe out there. Its carnage.
