British Zoo Uses Riot Shields Against Aggressive CranesBy Gerard
Riot shields and police officers have been drafted in by staff at a Devon zoo to help them develop defensive tactics against aggressive birds. The two decommissioned police shields have been sent to to Exmoor Zoo near Barnstaple, so staff can fend off violent cranes.
Curator Danny Reynolds said police were training staff to use the shields. Staff have been kicked, pecked and hit by wings, especially during the mating season, Mr Reynolds said.
