Robin orders sparrow to be shot

Aug 1979: Frustrated by a sparrow that was chirping in his church when a guitar recital was going to be recorded, Rev. Robin Clark ordered the bird to be shot.

I'm sure that, after that, no one made a sound during the recital.

The Vancouver Columbian - Aug 8, 1979

I couldn't find a recording of the sparrow-death recital, but here's some music by Konrad Ragossnig.

I might prefer hearing a bird.

A gun fired inside a building with stained glass windows, very, very expensive stained glass windows . . . I wouldn't expect that to end well.

It doesn't say a gun was used. Given that the pastor's name was Robin, it could have been revenge for the killing of Cock Robin, and done in a similar fashion.
