The pigeon clearly shows livid bruising after his arrest

A council has defended its decision to issue an £80 litter fine after a pigeon dropped two crisps on the pavement. The pigeon was pounced on by 2 zealous litter wardens who threw themselves onto the shocked bird waving their council badges.

An eyewitness stated, "It was horrific. One minute my son was throwing bits of sausage roll to a flock of pigeons, the next two uniformed women emerged running from around a corner, one threw herself onto a pigeon near the edge of the group, the other was screaming its rights and showing her warrant."

Another witness described her trauma at witnessing the arrest, "We didn't even notice the crisp at first, we just saw the pigeon flapping feebly under the warden, after they had taken it away, there were just a few feathers and the mashed up crisps."

West Sussex council today stated that the two wardens were within their rights to arrest the sky-rat and that they had complied fully with a lawful arrest by reading the pigeon its rights before chaining it up.

The pigeon was examined briefly by a local vet before beginning its journey to Guantanamo Bay for questioning.

Friends of the bird today said, "He's devastated, he's just a stool-pigeon."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
