Australian dies while fleeing swooping magpie

An Australian man was killed Sunday after he crashed into a fence riding his bike, while avoiding a swooping magpie. The unidentified 76-year-old was riding his bike on a path in Nicholson Park in Woonona, New South Wales, when the incident took place. Magpies are known to ’swoop’ around strangers during mating season and can even become aggressive and attack humans crossing their territory.

That's an embarrassing way to go... I have also read of motorcyclists who have had squirrels fall onto them from trees, getting bitten and scratched by the panicking beasts, and barely living through it
