That's why the Pope, and others who advocate "peace," have such an uphill climb. Nature is not peaceful, but "red in tooth and claw" without even
bringing Homo sapiens into the picture. The two attacking birds aren't even good predators. they're not raptors; they are scavengers, yet these
strange doves, not suited to the environment of Rome, get attacked just based on territorial reasons.
In my city hawks have been introduced just to keep the pigeon population down. Doves and pigeons are in the same family: Columbidae.
