This Man Ended Up Having To Escape The Injured Bird He Rescued

By Aimee Lutkin

Rescuing wild animals is a dangerous game. They do need care, but they are not usually on board with you about going to get it.

BBC reporter Matt Graveling tweeted about his adventure rescuing a red kite, which is a raptor bird with teeth and a beak to match. His first picture shows a sleeping stunned baby, and his last pic shows an angry demon. Here's the timeline as he describes it:

2:30pm - Driving to filming location  
2:45pm - Pick injured bird off the road and put in car.  
3:00pm - Unconscious bird wakes up.  
3:01pm - Escape from car  
3:02 - 6:29pm - Unable to get back in car. 
6:30pm - RSPCA turn up to take away the angry, injured bird.
