This is the dumbest thing I've seen in a very long time. A woman is suing Lowe's Hardware Center in excess of $50,000 because a bird flew into the back of her head at the outdoor gardening area of the store.
According to the suit, filed by the St. Louis firm of Anderson & Associates, the store "allowed wild birds to enter the Gardening area in which customers travel ... (and) that said wild birds created a dangerous condition."Good Heavens! It was a fly-by beaking! Seriously, the bird probably was just getting a little hair for its nest. What was the store supposed to do, shoot any bird that comes near the display? It's outside, for crying out loud! This woman and her lawyer should be charged for filing a nuisance suit.
Nichols claims the bird caused injuries to her head, brain, neck, muscles, bones, nerves, discs, ligaments, as well leading to the loss of neurological functions and cognitive skills.
Her attorney, Zane T. Cagle, said "the bird was described to us as being about the size of a robin or pigeon."
