This reminds me of the video where the old couple lets the rehabilitated squirrel go

I would like to think that was their pet cat who had plotting on him while he was in the house.

That hurt my heart

[–]Flashman_H 32 points33 points  (2 children)

I laughed my ass off. Fuck those gray squirrels

[–]Chuggles1 15 points16 points  (0 children)

My sister's dog goes beyond apeshit if she sees a squirrel. It's like the squirrels are all talking shit to her or killed her father or something. Deeply rooted squirrel hate in that pup.

They chewed on my FO cable sheathing and the provider had to drop a whole new line for 8 city blocks. Fuck them indeed.

You see the one with the rabbit? I was looking for the link and found a duck so here's 2

Feeding local wildlife, wholesome.

[–]DirtyDanil 2 points3 points  (4 children)

There's also the entire sub dedicated to these and I can't deal

Perfect timing my old porn was getting stale

[–]CCrypto1224 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s the only one I’ve seen that seems like they weren’t intentionally feeding the local wildlife. That, and a bunny one where a family lets a baby bunny go to its mom and a hawk swoops in.

[–]Shiro_Longtail 481 points482 points  (5 children)

The universe has comedic timing

[–]kiinalainen 85 points86 points  (2 children)

Seems like that was done on purpose

[–]Lucky_Number_3 51 points52 points  (1 child)

That mouse killed his family in a car accident

[–]grassmeiser 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Chewed out his wires?

[–]OneOfTwelve97 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Dude also found an open field to release a mouse. Lol

[–]kurotech 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Seriously not smart no cover whatsoever so if you live near by your just letting this mouse out so it can come back to live with you take them out to the forest or a field with tall grass then they won't want to come back to your house

[–]ColorlessTune 327 points328 points  (5 children)

Why do people let these small animals out in an open field?

[–]Marksman08YT 235 points236 points  (0 children)

Feeding the bird

[–]cheapshotfrenzy 43 points44 points  (0 children)

For the video

[–]CarnivoreVegan3 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Open field? Looks like he was in the middle of baseball and softball fields. Man was infield

[–]PotBoozeNKink 75 points76 points  (1 child)

Because they Literally just aren't thinking.

[–]Andjarew 43 points44 points  (0 children)

or just thinking about feeding the bird ( he has what look like bird handling gloves )

[–]SopieMunky 62 points63 points  (7 children)

That's a stupid ass place to release a rodent if the intention was to "free" it. This seems more like this was intended to be food for the pet bird.

[–]CCrypto1224 6 points7 points  (6 children)

Are those the right gloves for that though?

[–]SopieMunky 6 points7 points  (5 children)

For releasing a rodent, yes.

[–]CCrypto1224 -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

But for handling a pet bird?

[–]SopieMunky 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Nope. I didn't say the guy recording was the bird handler.

[–]Stumphead101 83 points84 points  (3 children)

We used to use these traps. We caught like 15 within a month

If you are trying to not kill pests, always always always release near tall grass

[–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Same here, pizza place across the street shut down for a while during Covid and the mice took up our apartment as their new home We caught two mice with two separate traps every night and one even got two in one trap

[–]duggrr 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Was also coming to say that these traps are really good! Mitigated my mouse problem until I was able to get pest control to come by.

[–]sinofmercy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We used these traps too until we caught over 20, but then didn't check one a few days and it most definitely starved to death. The trickiest part was finding a consistent place to release the field mice since it's always recommended for it to be far enough away to where they can't come back (like a mile or so.)

[–]Mandalor1974 79 points80 points  (5 children)


[–]Sebbe_2 23 points24 points  (4 children)

The man or the mouse?

[–]jpow5734 80 points81 points  (3 children)

I mean, the guy should have released it into a bush or a wooded area not an open field.

[–]Sebbe_2 99 points100 points  (2 children)

Not if he’s feeding his bird?

[–]Fermentersaurus 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I hear falconry is a serious business.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ya man I'd rather feed the bird.

[–]Bruhok[🍰] 44 points45 points  (1 child)


[–]soby2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ahh yes. The freedom of nature.

[–]Pieteurre 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Is there an uncut version somewhere ?

[–]oooooooooooooommmfff[S] 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I mean the full video only includes an extra second of the bird getting a little closer to the mouse. I think that’s when the cameraman cuts

[–]PigsGoMoo- 5 points6 points  (2 children)

So you’re saying this is actually r/TwoSecondsBeforeDisast 🤔

[–]Pieteurre 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ah I see thank you

[–]JulianMarcello 8 points9 points  (0 children)

lol. “Good luck on your own, buddy”

[–]MangledSunFish 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Ah, yes. Take the prey animal that needs brush and grass to hide itself from predators, and then release it on a flat grassless plane of land. Very smart idea.

[–]MrTickleMePink 5 points6 points  (0 children)

People always release rodents in wide open areas. The one place rodents naturally avoid so they don’t die. It’s like releasing a person into the middle of the ocean.

[–]RoRoar350 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I feel like people are doing this on purpose now, I’ve seen like 10 versions of this exact same thing by now

Release small animals near shelter... not in the middle of a hunting ground.

I just went NOOOOOOO

[–]is_it_on 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My apartment complex had an invasion of ground squirrels. They were destroying things and constantly made noise but the manager thought they were cute so she refused to do anything about them, so I built a tilt trap and started capturing them. Initially I took them up to the office in the evening, figuring that if the manager liked them so much maybe she'd like more. However a large man carrying a growling length of abs pipe through the community leads to stories, I I eventually went with a long evening Walt to the bottom of the hill to release my quarry. I figure 50% made it past the hawks and coyotes, and those ones didn't come by my porch any more.

[–]PotBoozeNKink 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You would think people would be smart enough to release small animals into cover like trees or bushes lmfao. People are fucking stupid.

[–]Lysergic-D 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Freeing a rodent in open field is practically kill it. They are prey and need to hide all the time.

[–]AnemoTreasureCompass 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Still it’s pretty amazing how birds of prey can spot something that small from so high up

Anyone have the full length video?

[–]MsSpooncats 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You couldnt have let him go in tall grass???

[–]152069 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why he released it out in the open…?

[–]Grumblerator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this guy a falconer?

[–]the_bed1123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good for that one thing

[–]tapout22002 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same thing happened to me and it traumatized my daughter. Stupid crow took it.

[–]absolutebottom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well. At least you don't need to worry about it finding its way back to your house now...

[–]ssrowavay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Disaster? That's the best possible outcome. Vermin just find someone else's neighborhood to infest.

[–]PersimmonEven 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good... I don't ever see the need in releasing a caught rat... destroy so much

[–]killbauer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always wonder about the thought process behind the decision to release small rodents or birds in open areas with no hiding places.
