[art, liff] CSI: West Miami Beach, Bad Bird Drawings Dept

Pointed at by Twitterer Amy Vernon (@amyvernon) and more fully documented in her tumblr post (http://amyvernon.tumblr.com/post/711857742/that-is-the-actual-drawing-used-on-the-news-see) we conclude that it was a slow news day in West Palm Beach, Florida when a pissed-off bird decided to buffet the heads on ladies walking their dogs down a certain street or other.

ABC station WPBF, Channel 25, interviewed two now-freaked-out ladies and asked one of them to make a sketch, and here's what she came up with:

Oh, they scoffed at cutting arts funding in the schools, but you see what comes of it now? Hmm?

West Palm Beachians, be on the lookout for the above bird. If you see it ... well, I'm not sure what to tell you here. Rehab might be in order.

See the whole report at http://www.wpbf.com/news/23460004/detail.html, if you can stand the suspense. Or something.
