LA VOIX DU NORD (France)
SECLIN –A mini flock of three crows have been terrorizing a neighborhood in this northern French town, attacking children on their way to school and people walking their dogs.
Three black birds, obvious fans of Alfred Hitchcock movies, have launched a series of attacks on the inhabitants of the small town of Seclin, near the city of Lille. One of the village's concerned mothers told La Voix du Nord that “the kids have been attacked by crows in the schoolyard several times over the past few days. The birds hover for a while, and then dive straight for the head.”
The local school principal said: “They are probably tamed and looking for food. They may have gotten angry from the stones people throw at them.”
The school chief observed that one of them had a ring attached, and therefore belonged to someone, reported La Voix du Nord. The city has formed a bird control team to place traps on roofs.
Soon after, one of the birds was captured. The other two still fly free: "Caaw, caaw, caaw..."
Judge María Belén Ureña Carazo, of the family court of Marbella, a city on the southern coast of 141,000 people, has ordered the toddler to stay with father who lives in the city rather than with his mother because she was living in "deep Galicia" where the child would lack opportunities to "grow up in a happy environment."
