Bird goes after hatless guys near San Antonio Deli

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A dive-bombing bird has been going for hatless guys as they walk near a San Antonio deli.

The manager of the McAlister's Deli says the bird doesn't seem to peck anyone, but Michael Sangiuliano says "it will sure scare the pants off you."

WOAI-TV video posted Monday shows the dark bird, apparently a grackle, swooping toward assorted males as they walk across a parking lot or try to enter vehicles. A couple of men say they were
slightly scratched.

Sangiuliano says the bird, which has taken to perching atop a tree since its nest was recently removed, doesn't seem to target women or children.

Deli employees have been warning customers to be aware of the unpredictable bird.
