People are afraid of strange things. The latest thing to cause fear in Poland is a croissant. A croissant scared some people in Krakow. They made a mistake. They said it was an animal. They were very worried. They kept their windows closed for a few days. They called an animal welfare society for help.

One person said the strange animal was a lizard. A welfare officer went to look. He saw a "brown creature" in a tree. He said: "The poor little guy had no legs or head." When he saw the strange animal was really a croissant, he laughed a lot. He was happy the people called him. He said it was better to be safe than sorry.
