Pope's dove of peace almost ends in pieces: Seagull attacks bird seconds after Pontiff releases it from Vatican balcony

Releasing a dove is a symbolic appeal for peace. But when the Pope tried it yesterday, it led to quite a flap.

Nobody had bargained on a resident seagull who apparently hadn't been listening to the Holy Father's sermon.

It swooped in and attacked the bird of peace as soon as Pope Benedict XVI released the dove from a balcony at the Vatican.

Did the Pope himself actually release the bird? I see an apparently unattatched pair of hands in the background. Like birth control, preaching about something he knows nothing about.

Hmm - Catholic bashing exists in the seagull population as well as on Jet Blast then :suspect:
