    UK - Scythe-wielding 'lunatic' forces birdwatcher to kneel, threatens limb amputation

    Scythe-wielding 'lunatic' forced birdwatcher to kneel and said he was going to chop his limbs off in terrorist-style execution (Daily Mail)
    Scott Cullen, 22, had set up his camera to photograph woodpeckers in the Welsh countryside when he was confronted by angry local Leslie Bickley.
