Citizens of Poland’s former capital were reportedly afraid to open their windows for days as a scary creature kept creeping them out from a nearby tree. The animal rescue workers found out it was just a thrown out piece of French pastry
The former capital of Poland can offer yet another jewel to underline its glory. Apart from its well-preserved city center under UNESCO heritage protection, and Jewish quarter renowned for its vibrant night light, Krakow now features – attack croissants.
It all started when Krakow’s animal rescue workers received an unusual call. An evidently upset woman told them that there was a “scary creature” sitting on a tree and terrifying the neighborhood.
The caller was so scared that she couldn’t describe the thing accordingly. She told them that it was brown and people were so afraid of it they hadn’t opened their windows for days.
To the question of what animal she thought it was, she said that it looked like a… lagoon. The rescuer figured she might have be thinking of an iguana.
After a short chat, the caller specified that the creature doesn’t move and shows no action whatsoever. Then she asked the workers to come and pick it up.
"It's hard to help something that was previously baked"
Upon arrival, the rescuers started to search for the animal. They noticed that the windows were open. “Is the iguana gone?” they thought.
And after a while, they saw it and realized that there is no hope for the poor thing. It was brown as reported, but it didn’t have any legs nor head.
“We already knew that we can’t help the creature, iguana, or rather – lagoon,” they told RMF 24 radio station.
“Because it’s hard to help something that was previously baked, not in the sunlight. Because it’s hard to help something that almost swept us off our feet… with a laugh attack.”
“This mysterious lagoon – iguana – turned out to be… croissant, a French croissant.”
