VIDEO: Woman tries to save dying pigeon by giving it CPR

A woman in Scotland has been filmed giving a dying pigeon mouth-to-mouth in an attempt to save it.

The footage, which has gone viral online, was posted to Twitter by @Charlismyname on Wednesday with the caption “Meanwhile in Glasgow… “.

In the clip, the woman can be seen puffing air into the lifeless bird before she starts to repeatedly press down on its stomach.


Tragically, the bird doesn’t appear to gain consciousness.

People have reacted differently to the clip. Some have praised the woman’s actions while others have been left mortified.

“At least someone has a heart for animals,” one person wrote.

“What did I just watch!” commented another.
