Here's the original post by Reddit user u/GreenBirdLady:
The GF of Op's dad recently moved in with them and brought her three birds.
Op decided to bring one bird along with them on a ride.
Op made sure to take all the necessary precautions to ensure the bird's safety.
Op started bleeding after bashing their head into the door frame.
Kiwi couldn't fly long distances yet and was unable to fly down from the building.
Op tried to find help but couldn't speak English fluently yet.
Op convinced the officer to let him on the roof, but things got out of hand.
The bird eventually calmed down, but it didn't last that long.
The police officer came back the next day because he was worried about the bites.
Op added a TL;DR at the end that is considerably long but not as much as the text above.
Here's how the Reddit community reacted to u/GreenBirdLady's post:
People are not used to getting attacked violently by birds.
It can be good luck, but if a random bird singles you out, that's bad luck.
Op's TL;DR could have been shorter.
The bird's name can be confusing to someone from New Zealand.
The bird is not always violent and is actually the sweetest.
When something a teacher told you a long time ago comes back to haunt you.
Everyone loves a happy ending.
This user was, unfortunately, not as lucky as Op.
Some events can cause birds to freak out and fly away.
Well, this was one interesting story. Op was lucky they were able to retrieve the bird back.
Kudos to the police officer for helping Op with this weird situation they could have entirely avoided. If you enjoyed reading this, make sure to check out similar content on our platform.
