    Angry Buzzard Terrorizes English Country Road

    Fri Jun 11, 7:26 AM ET

    LONDON (Reuters) - An angry buzzard is terrorizing a quiet English country road by dive-bombing passing cyclists, newspapers reported on Friday.

    Paul Taylor, 71, said the bird of prey used its beak and claws to rip a three-inch gash in his head as he cycled along the stretch of road near Holsworthy, in Devon, western England.

    "I thought at first it was a lorry passing and the wing mirror had somehow caught my head," he told the Daily Mail.

    "Then I saw the buzzard swooping in front of me and suddenly there was blood pouring down my head and face."

    Last weekend 22 cyclists taking part in a long distance competition along the road -- the A3072 -- suffered head injuries or had gouges taken out of their helmets by the same bird, according to the race coordinator.

    The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds suggested the bird was probably nesting nearby and was defending its chicks.

    "We would suggest that people avoid the road for a few weeks, but if cyclists do want to use it we would advise them to paint a pair of eyes on their helmets," a spokeswoman told the Daily Express. "That will put the buzzard off."


    -------THEN, A FEW WEEKS LATER-----------


    LONDON - A buzzard which attacked more than 20 cyclists on a country road has died after dive-bombing a van, officials said Thursday.

    The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds said the aggressive buzzard died Wednesday when it swooped on the vehicle near Holsworthy in southwest England.

    In recent weeks the bird clawed cyclists' heads and gouged holes in their helmets; experts believe the bird was protecting its nest nearby.

    "It was just being a good parent, although it was probably rather too enthusiastic," said RSPB spokeswoman Emma Parkin.

    It was unusual for buzzards to attack humans, she added, and the activities of this individual suggested it had once been in captivity.

    Retired toolmaker Paul Dixon, 71, North Devon secretary of the Cyclists Touring Club, was among those attacked.

    He was not wearing a cycle helmet when the angry bird swooped, leaving him with three large bleeding scratches. Many of the 22 competitors in two long-distance cycle races in the area two weeks ago were also attacked.
