A man has said he’s been forced to build a garage to protect his new £20,000 car from crow attacks.
Car owners living in a residential area of Stirling in central Scotland have had windscreen wiper blades pecked off, windows left covered in scratches and saliva and rubber seals around windows and wing mirrors disturbed.
One resident claims that the attacks have continued and that his brand new car suffered £500 worth of damage within an hour of parking it in the street in December.
Ian Welsh said: “I had only just bought the car and I brought it back home, within an hour the crows had been at it, pecking the seal around the windscreen.
“I thought crows were seasonal, but folk in the street are still having their cars attacked, right through December and January.
“I took the car back to the dealer and found out it would be about £500 to have it repaired.
“So I’ve decided to have a timber–framed garage built at the side of the house to park the car in.”
