Magpie Alert is a site that allows people to record incidences of magpies swooping them, resulting in the creation of THIS FUCKING TERRIFYING MAP:

Yes, that is all the reported magpie attacks in 2016. It doesn't even include the1,007,567 that I'm sure go unreported.

Yes, that is all the reported magpie attacks in 2016. It doesn't even include the1,007,567 that I'm sure go unreported.

If you narrow it down to attacks that resulted in actual injuries, the map is... still fucking terrifying.

And the accompanying stories are like something out of a horror movie.

Stay safe out there, folks.
