SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A pigeon caused quite a panic when it hopped aboard a BART train in San Francisco.

At first the bird just strolled calmly down the aisle checking out its fellow passengers. When one of the humans decided to be a hero and ‘save’ it, the bird decided to be a bird, and fly, frightening at least one passenger.

Sharadha R. caught it on video and tweeted, “A man trying to catch it! This is even more terrifying!.”

Next Tweet? ‘Man caught it. He’s a BART hero.’

The man set the bird free at the next stop. Sharadha R. assures us the pigeon was not harmed in the making of this video. 😉
