A Scottish man has been filmed apparently punching a pigeon after his pals ‘tried to get him to kiss’ the bird .

The Snapchat video – shared on multiple Facebook pages – has been viewed thousands of times and attracted criticism for promoting ‘animal abuse’.

The shirtless man is seen lying down in the clip as his pals try to push a pigeon into his face in apparent attempt to get him to kiss it.

Amid much laughter and music playing, the man clenches his fist and threatens to punch the bird.

One says: “I bet you don’t crack it”.

Suddenly, the man is filmed striking the bird.

The pigeon reacts in shock and the room erupts.

The clip was shared on Glaswegian.

Some claimed it was animal cruelty while others said the boys were just having a laugh.

Mike Kelly wrote: “Horrible b******.”

Meanwhile, Peter Collins said on the Glasgow Gospel page: “Animal cruelty isn’t funny.”

However, Derek Santini posted: “All the pigeon lovers getting very angry on here.”
