Apparently some wildlife got out of hand according to a report by the Orlando Sentinels Gabrielle Russon.

Celebration, FL resident, Lisa Dixon, is suing the resort, claiming that she suffered severe brain injuries following an attack by a bird at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in May 2017.

She also alleges Disney knew seasonal nesting birds could be dangerous. The suit brought by Dixon is seeking damages in excess of $15,000, according to the suit filed in Orange County Circuit Court.

According to Dixon’s lawyer, Thomas Schmitt, the bird “dive-bombed” her head with the force of a baseball, causing her to suffer a traumatic brain injury and herniated discs in her neck. The injuries will require surgery, according to Schmitt. The injury has allegedly her ability to focus as well as her personality, “changing her life,” Schmitt added. The type of bird could not be identified, aside from that it was a seasonal migrating bird.
