OMG, one of UK’s top parakeets has been assassinated. Yes, assassinated folks.Andrew Pooley returned to his Cornwall home after being out a few hours only to discover utter carnage. His champion Penmead Pride had been stamped to death, 9 others murdered and 21 others missing. The incident happened the night before the Cornwall Budgerigar Society Club Show (where the year before Penmead Pride won “Best In Breed”). Police believe the culprit is someone from the bird keeping community. Ya think?

Health and safety officials have banned a vicar from winding the St Michael’s church clock in Cornwall because it is too dangerous to climb the 8 steps of a ladder, despite the feat being performed for 200 years without incident. Bless.
OK joggers, try not to piss off the birds. Seems some British buzzards are just as opposed to physical fitness and lycra as I am. Stuart Urquhart was out jogging in Cornwall when he was attacked by a buzzard, that’s right, a friggin buzzard. The angry little enormous thing flew down and whacked him on the back of the head, leaving a bloodied mess for Stuart to clean up… “I have brown hair and I wasn’t sure if the buzzard had mistaken me for a big, slow rabbit”. No Stuart, he just doesn’t like friggin joggers (take a hint!). Then low and behold, after having a nice old tetanus shot, Stuart resumed the friggin jogging thingy (hello!). Hmm and of course that buzzard was still sitting right there waiting for him. This time fearless Stuart mangaged to dive clear as the bird came at him with his talons at the ready. Another jogger, Paul Powell, was also attacked, he now has some nice puncture wounds to the head thanks to those buzzard talons. So all and all a good week for buzzards in Britain.
