Angry birds attack peace doves released by Pope Francis

January 27, 2014 - 8:46AM

 

Two white doves that were released by children standing alongside Pope Francis as a peace gesture have been attacked by other birds.

 

As tens of thousands of people watched in St. Peter's Square on Sunday, a seagull and a large black crow swept down on the doves right after they were set free from an open window of the Apostolic Palace.

lol I see you don't have much appreciation for irony. We live in a world at war, always have. The catholic church, has even been at the heart of many of these wars. and they release "doves" as a sign of peace, only to have them taken down by warlike birds. its ironic. And I enjoy irony.

It's also ironic because so many in our society think that spreading good vibes of peace will make everything better, symbolized by the releasing of the doves. Reality however is that there are those who seek to destroy and no amount of good will can stop them.

 

WW 2 should have taught people that. But you know what they say about those that don't learn from history.

The pope recently called Islam a religion of peace. He launches his doves and they get savaged by the predators. That's appeasement for you.

I'm with The Patriot! I think it's funny... What is surprising is that people forget how wild birds are... They know "eat, sleep, have kids, repeat". And people are shocked when a predatory bird attacks its natural prey?

Cute, DRS81. But Mr. Rogers teaching children how they should behave is a bit different that what is at play here.

    Gee,sis....that really is something else,I really believe(perhaps I should not even say it but I am going to go out on a limb here)I see this as if those doves were released by, hmmm......someone truly anointed by God,I do not believe would have been harmed in any way........IMHO...I think we ought to pray for the pope

Animals eat whatever.. I'm convinced of it... A couple days ago, I saw some finches eating the meat off of a discarded mostly eaten chicken wing. Never thought they would be meat eaters either. Crows are carrion eaters, so no surprise that they would go for a dove. Seagulls on the other hand normally eat seafood. I guess "dove" tastes like chicken of the sea to them...
