Watch: Cops use a drone and a knife to free a pigeon entangled in a high-voltage cable

A pigeon was rescued with the help of a drone after being caught on a high voltage power cable for about 12 hours.

In a video that has now gone viral on social media, police officers can be seen taping a knife to the drone and then flying it close to the pigeon to cut the string that is tying the bird to the power cable.

According to Reuters, the incident occurred in Lima, Peru. “Peruvian police utilized a drone, some tape, and the blade of a knife to rescue a pigeon entangled in a high-tension electric wire in Peru’s capital Lima,” said the caption of the tweet, which has now had over one lac views.

The pigeon was rescued by neighbors, who used a scissor to cut away the remaining string knotted on the bird’s leg, according to a DailyMail story. The rescued bird was subsequently placed in a cage and transported to a nearby animal shelter.
