This pigeon learned what Santa can do, pigeons can't. Getting down the chimney was easy, getting out required a whole different strategy.

Imagine walking into your house only to find a pigeon in the fireplace. Fortunately, for this guy, the spark screen kept the bird confined until he could make an attempt to grab it and release it outside.

Unfortunately, that didn't go quite as planned. The pigeon wasn't about to be scooped up in a towel. Let's face it, he probably felt one traumatic experience was enough for the day.

In the end, the bird gets to return to the great outdoors and the house isn't destroyed in the process.
