Who did this to St. Francis?!

I need answers. St. Francis has been beheaded!



This is terrible! Who could've done this?!




Well I didn't want to say anything and I was just minding my own business getting ready for winter but....I did see Bob the Mourning Dove in the vicinity....




We the jury find Bob the Mourning Dove guilty!





Huh?

Well, that was a fun way to start the day! Thanks!

Jayne said...

Oh, my. Poor St. Francis. Hope you can put him back together again! :c)

He looks awfully guilty! You better call in a Crime scene unit! Though it looks as if your case is pretty straight forward.
Fun post!
Cheers, Klaus

Shelley your posts always put a smile on my face while I'm drinking my morning coffee and I actually think Bob is innocent and that little tattletale chipmunk has it out for him.

Lynne said...

Waaa! Bob's been framed!!

NCmountainwoman said...

I would never take the word of a chipmunk. They are not to be trusted.

Thanks for the laugh.

OH! When I read the title "Who did this" I thought - bird poop! then I saw picture and gasped!
I say "Innocent until proven guilty!"

Bird Girl said...

Well, I'm more inclined to think that pesky little chipmunk is the culprit! We have an old cemetery in our area and all the Memorial Day flags were missing one year - of course the teenagers were blamed - that is until my friend looked out her window one morning and saw a squirrel stuffing her mouth FULL of a flag!!! Nesting material!
Yep, Bob has been framed -haha!
Great photos!

Shellmo said...

Peekaboo - so glad I made you smile!

Birdlady - Glad I was able to be a part of it!

Jayne - I'm going to have the hubby glue his head back on!

KJ - you're right about a crime unit!

Gardener - the chipmunk always has had a big mouth - look how much he can stuff into those cheeks of his!

Lynne - I still declare Bob guilty - lol!

NC - but look at that chipmunk's cute little face...

Wendy- you're right - I need to follow the legal system...

Birdgirl - I just can't believe my sweet little chipmunk could do any wrong...:-)

Leedra said...

And it had been so pretty with the birds in your earlier post. I was like Wendy, I gasped at the first photo. Love the series to go with it.

Charli and me said...

I just don't think he did it. I'm banking the squirrel did it.

Shellmo said...

Leedra - I gasped & almost cried when I saw what happened to St. Francis!

Charli - you may be right....

MuseSwings said...

Poor St. Francis! I hope he has good medical insurance. It was probably one of MY squirrels! The ones who keep rearranging my garden and beheading my roses. Cute post!

Ecobirder said...

Poor Bob, I think that he was framed by the shifty looking ground squirrel.

Sandy said...

I agree, it must have been that dove..haha

Jessica said...

I love it when all your critter talk to each other! It's very entertaining.

RuthieJ said...

Poor St Francis. Can he be repaired? I'm sure Bob didn't mean it!

troutbirder said...

St. Francis. Oh no! The animals all love him. Its definately a frame-up.

HANNIBAL said...

Oooh! A mystery! I love it! Hope to hear more as the evidence unfolds...

I don't know what upset me more, the grave injury to St. Francis (who was clearly minding his own business) or the fact that you said you're "getting ready for winter." I'm not even ready for fall yet (although I think we may be in for a killer frost very soon, so time to get in the rest of the tomatoes.)

It was the squirrel. It's always the squirrel.
