This is the hilarious moment a pigeon flew into the home of a unsuspecting member of the public.
Carl Ferris had just finished a hard day’s work when he got home and crashed on the sofa to play a bit of FIFA.
He heard some rustling coming from the kitchen but put it down to wind or one of the cats. Feeling a bit peckish he went into the kitchen, only to be greeted by an intrusive (mostly confused) pigeon.
Watch the video here:
I’ve never been so scared in my whole life! I’m really, really not a big fan of anything that flies and I generally crapped myself! This then led to the intense run around the flat trying to get the poor thing out of the flat.
Eventually the animal left of its own accord, much to the delight of Carl who presumably then got on with playing FIFA.
Although hilarious, these things can happen from time to time, we may as well go over what the best options are for dealing with a situation like this.
The best way to get a bird out of your house? To get rid of birds that have accidentally flown into your house you have to stay calm.
The harder you try to intimidate a bird out, the more frightened it becomes, and the more chaotically it goes about the place.
When wild birds find themselves in a place they don’t want to be, they will frantically fly around until they become tired, at which point they’ll find something to rest on and pretty much stick to it.
When they chill, then’s your chance to catch them. Use a large fish net and scoop the bird up. Set the whole net on the ground and lift it off the bird. If you don’t have fish net, use a towel by throwing it over the top of the bird, and scooping two ends under it and grabbing the other two ends to form a hammock with the bird in the middle.
If this hilarious type of a malarkey doesn’t work, you may have to call a pest control or animal control company. Under no circumstances should you try to catch a wild bird with your hands or try and pick it up, as they can carry diseases. Also: bird bites are very painful.
Anyway, have fun out there and remember: pigeons are our friends.
