Portland police officer hit by bird’s “aerial bombardment”

On Wednesday the Portland Police Department made an unusual post on their Facebook page, jokingly describing an unfortunate surprise for Officer Alissa Poisson after she was hit by the droppings of a passing bird.

In less than a day the post has received thousands of views and shares on social media, but the “duck of interest” remains at large.
