News magpie swooping season had hit us early this year has thrown us into a state of national panic, fear and even denial.
Reports have been coming in from across Australia of magpie attacks and they are only getting more and more vicious.
Everyone has a magpie horror story, but we think we've found possibly the most savage magpie on Aussie streets thanks to Reddit.
On a thread asking for the craziest magpie story on hand, user 'fuzzyfurbum' detailed that he and his neighbours were genuinely being held captive in fear of the pie strictly monitoring a 200 metre strip of the street.
"He doesn't just swoop, he is intent on the kill!"
This is absolutely terrifying. Can you top this?
