Pope's peace doves attacked by crow and seagull

Two white doves released by children standing alongside Pope Francis in Vatican City as a peace gesture have been attacked by other birds.

A seagull and a black crow swept down on the doves after they were set free from the Apostolic Palace during the Pope's weekly Angelus prayer.

Tens of thousands of people watched as one dove struggled to break free.

But the crow pecked repeatedly at the other dove. It is not clear what happened to the doves that flew away.

Introducing different animals or birds into another creature's territory is never a good idea.
It's like dumping a strange man into my house by surprise, I am not gonna offer him a cup of tea, I am gonna quickly throw the bugger out.

Or, it's like shoving the pope into a synagogue.
