New Yorkers Are Freaking Out About This Thirsty Pigeon Taking Over Staten Island

We may have rats with wings in New York City, but at least they’re the smartest rats with wings around!

Earlier this week, man and beast worked together in harmony as New Yorker Steven Pesantez helped a little pigeon get a quick drink of water. The result of his efforts are hysterical and you can check it out for yourself in the video below!

According to an interview with The Dodo, Pesantez was eager to help an animal in need. “We saw the bird hanging out on the water fountain, He was hanging out there for a while…He had his head in there, drinking the water. He was absolutely enjoying it… It was cool to see an animal that needed help and to be able to help him. I felt so one with nature, in the ferry terminal.”

A model citizen if you ask us.
