Man rescues bird and 15 minutes later wishes he hadn’t

Here’s BBC reporter Matt Graveling who did the decent thing when he spotted an injured bird lying by the side of the road.

He picked it up and put it in his car.

Except it didn’t take long for him to regret it. 15 minutes, in fact.

And then this happened …

Not surprising really. Just look at it.

Fortunately it all ended well with only a few, er, ruffled feathers.

And just in case you’re wondering …

And it prompted a few people to share similar stories.
