An animal protection group in Poland were surprised to find a croissant lodged in a tree after responding to a call.
The Krakow Society for the Protection of Animals shared details of the incident to their Facebook page on Wednesday.
In it they described a phone conversation with a startled local who reported a creature sitting in a tree for a number of days.
Having suspected an April fool’s day prank, the group eventually went out on foot to investigate, and discovered the culprit was not a dangerous animal, but a croissant.
The post supposed that it had been thrown out for the birds before becoming lodged in the foliage of a nearby tree.
The picture of the perplexing pastry prompted more than 5,000 likes on Facebook, while hundreds commented on – and shared – the story.
While the animal protection group saw the funny side, they encouraged people always to be safe rather than sorry, and to report anything that concerns them.
