Cork city was left traumatised this week when a bird attacked more than 20 people.

After numerous disturbances in Cork IT, where two people needed medical treatment, the Cork Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals decided to call out to investigate the matter.

And it turns out that the culprit wasn't even a crow; it was a jackdaw.

The CSPCA said: "Jack the jackdaw. Apologies for the name but what else would you call the bandit of CIT.

"This little guy and its parents have been causing quite a stir over the past day or so with reports of people being buzzed overhead on the campus of CIT.

"So to prevent panic and a mass evacuation of the city, we headed over to see what all the fuss was about.

"Jack had fallen from its nest by either being too adventurous or got pushed by fellow siblings, when on the ground its parents were continuing to feed but also defend and protect it from anything that gets too close including humans, they were doing exactly what any other parent, human or animal would do in the same circumstances.

"As the nest could not be located, jack will now be fostered and will do quite well for itself and we are glad to report that calm has now been restored to our fair city."

Peace has been restored!
