Magpie attack on Cyclist - Argyle Ave, Chelsea VIC 3196
I avoided this spot for over 6 weeks, only to pass by again today and be attacked by the same bird. I see the council is aware of the situation as they've put up warning signs to absolve themselves of liability, but taken no action to remedy the situation and remove this dangerous nuisance. It's really not good enough for an area heavily used by families.
Injured:No
