Hungry Ostrich Bites Man's Finger As He Attempts To Feed It

A man who attempted to feed an ostrich as drive-through wildlife park ended up getting a nasty bite from one of the hungry birds.

Loading…

Clearly this ostrich has never heard the phrase, 'don't bite the hand that feeds you'.

The clip, filmed in Como in Mississippi earlier this month, shows a man and his family enjoying a lovely day out visiting the animals at a wildlife park and stopping to feed the ostriches.

The hungry ostriches can be seen popping their heads through the window to grab at the man's bag of bird food.

He says: "I think you are being a little aggressive right now."

And he's not wrong there, because seconds later one of the over-zealous birds ends up snapping on his finger instead, prompting the poor bloke to yell out in pain.

In response to the bite the fella manages to drop the bird food all over the car - and you can just tell that's going to be an absolute bloody nightmare to clean up.

Talking about the clip, which has since gone viral because we all love a bit of schadenfreude, the man said: "I was feeding two aggressive ostriches as my family looked on and laughed.

"The ending is me spilling animal feed after one of the ostriches bit my finger."

Earlier this year, an ostrich managed to pull off a brilliantly timed photobomb while a politician was being interviewed on TV.

Miguel Angel Revilla, the President of Cantabria in northern Spain, visited the Cabarceno Natural Park zoo to announce its reopening following its closure for the coronavirus pandemic.

But all eyes were on the inquisitive bird that decided to pop up over his shoulder and check out what was going on.

Revilla, 77, was completely oblivious to the bird and continued speaking to the cameras about the reopening, while the bird began started opening and closing its mouth as it watched on.

Of course, the news conference ended up going viral; but luckily, the politician managed to see the funny side.

Sharing a screenshot of Homer Simpson in a similar position he wrote: "The Simpsons already predicted it."

Good banter that, mate - do you want a job?
