Default Evil-Seeming Birds Attack Pope's Peaceful Doves

This sounds like a scene out of The Omen or Rosemary's Baby

A chilling incident occurred in the Vatican this morning just after Pope Francis called for an end to the violence in the Ukraine, where ongoing anti-government protests recently turned deadly. With the help of two children, Francis released two doves from the window of the Apostolic Palace as a symbol of peace, only to see them attacked by a crow and a seagull.

The Pope, the little boy and girl, and a crowd of tens of thousands of worshipers were forced to stand helplessly by as "one dove lost some feathers as it broke free from the gull," while the crow "pecked repeatedly at the other dove."





The Associated Press reports that, "It was not clear what happened to the doves as they flew off." Hopefully, they recovered and intend to continue to their avian fight for good. But, if something terrible happens somewhere in the world today, no one can say that there weren't any signs.

For those looking for omens on how to bet next week, i suppose the doves might symbolize Peyton Manning and the attack birds symbolize the Seahawks.
