Pope’s Gesture Of Peace Goes Terribly Wrong

“Fly my pretties”

Pope Francis, accompanied by two small children, made a dramatic peace gesture today when he released two small doves from the vatican. Tens of thousands of people looked on from St Peter’s Square to watch the demonstration that was supposed to be a message for the Ukraine.

Unfortunately the symbolic demonstration proved to be more true to life than The Pope would have liked when they were immediately attacked by two other birds.

One of the birds managed to (just about) escape an attack from a seagull, losing just a few feathers….but the other was repeatedly attacked by a crow while the The Pope looked on.
