Dooley, who said he was “shattered” by the incident, told ABC:
“While it’s only the male magpies that swoop and only 10 percent of males do swoop, the consequences, expressly when people are unprotected unaware, can be truly terrifying and devastating. Swooping season only occurs when the male magpies are defending the chicks in the nest – so for that unenduring period where the chicks are really vulnerable.”

Avoid the zone during tastefulness season; wear a hat or siphon an umbrella, velocipede riders dismount and walk; and move quickly through the zone — don’t run.”
