A TikTok video of a Singaporean woman treating a wild pigeon has gone viral.
The bird was covered in parasites
The woman, named Sarah Schmitzy on TikTok, works in the Tobias Kibbles pet supply store.
She found the bird sitting on a lawn outside the store along Geylang Road in the pouring rain and decided to bring it into the store.
In the TikTok video, which has been viewed nearly 200,000 times, she examined the tousled-looking bird and showed it to be full of parasites, with yellow pus coming out of its right eye.
She held the pigeon with a towel in her hand and carefully sprayed it with a solution to remove parasites, and cleaned it well with the towel.
She then left the bird in a cardboard box to rest overnight and named the pigeon Blackie.

Do much better on the second day
The woman took stock of the bird the next day, saying she was “so happy” that Blackie seemed to be doing much better.
The pigeon appeared more alert and the woman examined her body and feathers again, sharing that Blackie was clean and pest free.
The pus also seemed to have dried, and she sprayed the solution again as part of the treatment.
The woman also bought bread and fresh Evian water, and put them in a bowl in the cardboard box for the bird to consume in peace.
Glancing around the box, she said she was delighted to see Blackie eating well.
