Magpie Steals $6,000 Hearing Aid From Townsville Woman

Magpie swooping season is here and the war has begun. 

Locals are protecting themselves anyway possible, but the black and white critters are conniving and have no limits. 

The most recent reported attack was on a Townsville woman, innocently walking near Warrina when BAM- she was swooped upon! 

Jane O'Neil has been left without her left side hearing aid as a result of the swoop. 

"I saw it fly onto a sign, and then it went into the tree," Jane told Cliffo & Gabi.  

We had some great suggestions on this Facey post on places to avoid AND a tip that if you feed them, they'll like you?
