Man Uses Dead Pigeon As A Weapon During Street Fight

A late night street fight took a bizarre and unexpected turn when one of the combatants picked up a dead pigeon and threw it at his opponent. See the bizarre incident for yourself:

Luckily for us, the incident - which took place outside a McDonald's restaurant in Liverpool - was caught on camera. Footage shows the two men engaging in a set-to that seemed as if it was nearly over before one of the men grabbed a dead bird off the floor and hurled it at the other.

Basically, the two men - who it can be safely assumed were under the influence of alcohol - were fighting, while a more level-headed friend tried to drag one of them away from the conflict.

To be quite honest, both fighters seemed to be losing interest. Like two heavyweights who have been slugging it out for 12 rounds, but instead of 12 two-minute rounds, they've had 12 pints of premium lager.

In the clip, as the friend tries to diffuse the situation by dragging his scrapping pal away from the confrontation, his mate - being followed at this stage by his aggressor - picks up the unfortunate dead creature from the pavement and chucks it at the other man.

What a strange thing to do.

Fortunately for the man in question - and indeed those who wanted no further fighting to take place - the deceased bird flies (for the last time, RIP) over his shoulder and plops onto the floor.

To make matters even more surreal, speakers - presumably from a nearby nightspot - appear to be blasting out Lou Bega's cheesy pop hit 'Mambo Number Five'.

Seriously, watch the video, it's as strange as you're probably thinking and more.

The whole confusing scene was captured on camera by bouncer Kwasie Mensah. Sharing the video on Facebook - an exceptional public service, thanks - he said: "Can't believe he threw a dead pigeon."

Since the video was posted it has been viewed more than 150,000 times.

Naturally, a load of folk online have been registering their thoughts about the incident.

That said, Kwasie's 'can't believe he threw a dead bird' is actually pretty sufficient.

One online observer commented: "Poor pigeon did nothing." Not sure the pigeon minds, mate.

Another added: "Imagine getting a pigeon thrown at you half way through a scrap." Well, this guy no longer has to use his imagination.

A third offered: "Using a pigeon as a weapon is a new one for me." We'd be disappointed if it wasn't new to you.

The moral of the story is, don't scrap outside restaurants - or anywhere for that matter - and especially don't throw dead birds at people.

It's gross.
