The black feathered fiend starts flapping its wings while the reporter grabs frantically onto the bird’s legs before dropping it completely.

He then runs from the scene screaming with his arms held comically high.

As he escapes out of shot, the bird handler attempts to salvage the situation, while the chickens in the nearby cages go wild.

The clip was picked up by Russell Howard’s Good News and has quickly racked up almost 100,000 views.
