Doves released from Papal window... Other birds not too happy about it


On Sunday, after Pope Francis led the Angelus, two children released two white doves, as thousands of pilgrims looked on from St. Peter's Square.


Moments later though,  the doves were attacked by a black crow and then a seagull. Eventually they were able to break free. 


A similar scene played out last year when Benedict XVI released the doves from his studio window.
