OH NO!! Pope Francis’ “Peace Doves” Attacked by Crow and Seagull

OH NO!! Pope Francis’ “Peace Doves” Attacked by Crow and Seagull January 26, 2014

 

As tens of thousands of people watched in St. Peter’s Square today, two white doves released in St. Peter’s Square were attacked by a crow and a seagull.

 

Small children had joined Pope Francis in the window of the Apostolic Palace to release the doves today, as a peace gesture following the pope’s remarks calling for peace in Ukraine.  Civil unrest in that country this week has led to the deaths of anti-government protestors.

 

I’m afraid peace is hard to come by these days!  One of the two doves seems to have escaped from the seagull, losing some feathers but making a break for freedom.  The other dove was repeatedly pecked by the large black crow–and there are no reports of its final outcome.

I was reminded of this YouTube video which was trending last Fall, showing the unfortunate fate which befell a baby bunny that had been rescued and raised by a family, then released into the wild, only to be snatched up by a hawk.  Watch it if you dare.
