  • Other victims of ‘evil’ Magpie came forward to share how they were assaulted

A bride suffered a head wound after an ‘evil’ Magpie attacked her and left her needing hospital treatment – just a day before her honeymoon. 

Amanda Doyle, 36, was not the first victim of the bird which has been terrorising a town in Scotland.  

The mother-of-two was picking up her son from nursery today when the bird swooped down and ‘grabbed her head like a hat’. 

The Magpie then started pecking her head, which caused it to bleed in the bizarre attack. 

Luckily, her son Ronan escaped though it did look like it would also try to attack the three-year-old. 

She and her son were saved by a stranger who stepped in to help swat the beast away.  

The traumatised Mrs Doyle fears she may be left with an infection and has had the start of her honeymoon, due to begin in Cyprus tomorrow, well and truly ruined.

Mrs Doyle said: ‘It looked so evil, the fear was so bad I couldn’t move.

‘I am scared to go outside if I’m honest.

‘It held on to my head like a hat and pecked like mad.

‘It bounced off my back, then my face around 10 times, then it grabbed my head before flying away.

‘It came back and circled my son, then came for me again.

‘A man hit it but then it came back and got in my head really bad.

‘I am scared it will remember me, I’m going on my honeymoon tomorrow to Cyprus but I am so sore and upset.’ 

Mrs Doyle, from North Lanarkshire went to Hairmyres Hospital for treatment. 

She added: ‘The hospital went well, I was seen within two hours.

‘I had to get a tetanus jag and a deep clean.

‘The cut is not massive.’

‘But I’m so scared because if the stranger didn’t step in it would have been worse.’

Mrs Doyle is now warning people to stay away from the area or be on alert if they are nearby. 

She posted on social media: ‘Be careful around Bellshill on way to Bumblebee Nursey, and got attacked but a magpie, at lights at corner.’

Several others came forward claiming also to be victims of the vicious magpie.

One person said: ‘Really hope you are ok! That’s so scary.

‘I was trapped in my car last week as one chased me, it kept pecking the window and windscreen, this is very worrying knowing they are attacking.’

A second person added: ‘Me and my boy were attacked last week and this morning.’

A third person replied: ‘Tried to attack my daughter last week too.’
