'Mysterious headless beast' spotted in a tree in Poland turns out to be a CROISSANT

Polish animal welfare officers were left baffled after being called out about a dangerous-looking animal, which turned out to be a croissant.

The Krakow Animal Welfare Society said in a Facebook post on Wednesday that the organisation had received a desperate call from a resident in the southern Polish city about a creature lurking in a tree.

'It's been sitting in a tree across the house for two days! People aren't opening their windows because they're afraid it will go into their house,' the caller was reported as saying, adding that the mysterious beast was brown. 

While animal welfare workers suggested it could be a bird of prey, the caller said it looked more like an iguana but she could not remember the lizard's name and initially called it a 'lagoon', potentially adding to the confusion.

Inspectors visited the area, concerned that a reptile may not survive in the cool spring temperatures.

They eventually spotted something in a lilac tree, noting that it  had 'no legs or head'. 

'We already knew that we could not help this creature... The mysterious 'lagoon'... turned out to be a croissant,' the society wrote on Facebook. 

It said it hoped that the bizarre incident, which it believed was genuine, would not discourage others from reporting their animal welfare concerns.

The society said it had gotten calls about abandoned cats, dogs, and even fish.
