Police have been called to Greggs in Altrincham, where a lady has been subjected to a petrifying ordeal at the hands of gang of pigeons.
Police were called to the scene at around 1:26pm following reports of a serious incident outside Greggs. Shoppers were left in state of shock when the group of pigeons mercilessly attacked the lady in broad daylight.
Pigeons turned violent quickly
An eyewitness who didn’t want to be named said, “It started off with their usual cocky routine, you know glaring at you and cocking their heads towards you aggressively. The lady, who was quite visibly petrified of them, chucked them a bit of her sausage roll in order to get them to back off, it was then that the shit really hit the fan. The moment the ring leader had a bite and realised it was a vegan sausage roll he went completely off his head and launched a full scale attack of the woman with all his minions jumping in too. By the time she’d shook them off they had her purse, half her jewellery and a breakfast bar she’d been saving for the afternoon munchies”.
He went on to condemn local police for their lack of activity surrounding the pigeon crisis, “It’s hardly surprising they have no fear anymore, police have been letting them get away with murder for years around here. They basically run the fucking streets these days.”
Altrincham police have taken 6 pigeons into custody for further questioning. More news as we have it.
