A pet bird attacking people the moment its owner, a small girl, lets out a shriek has left Twitter users amused.
A video of the eerie incident has been viewed over 18 million times with nearly 5 lakh retweets and over one million likes after it was uploaded on the micro-blogging site on April 30 by a Twitter who goes by the name of ‘Lord Flocko’.
“My niece has her bird trained to attack anyone she screams at,” the user wrote.
He also sought the attention of ornithologists towards the freaky video.
“Any ornithologists looking at this, please DM me, I want a career,” he wrote.
In the four-second long video, the girl is seen standing on a bed while her bird is perched on the bed frame. She then turns towards the camera, lets out a shriek and the bird lunges at the person recording the video.
While the video has drawn a massive 11,000 comments so far, with users expressing their bewilderment over the girl’s “superpower”, one “paranormal investigator” felt there was more than what meets the eye in the video.
“Not an ornithologist but am a paranormal investigator. Don’t mean to alarm you but there is a white reflective material that floats down and appears to make contact with her, just before she screams. Could also be a speck of dust. Caught my eye first thing though,” the user wrote.
Why the bird didn’t even think twice about it tho? Didn’t even look , just FLEW— youtube/Alonzo (@alonzolerone) May 1, 2019
Progress to all those who think I’m not working on it. It makes me laugh every time I look at it because the way I drew the bird, it looks more derpy than fierce. 😭😂 pic.twitter.com/ADqs81YbD5— Chaotic Gaming (@__chaoticgaming) May 1, 2019
Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones? Possibly.
