WTF? Man and his mouth play tug-o-war with an angry kookaburra

Can we please get this man his own wildlife show? If there’s ever a guy who can get up close and personal with birds – specifically native Australian birds – it’s this guy. In the video we see the man entertaining two kookaburras on his back porch with a piece of meat.

One courageous kookaburra goes in for the ‘kill’, grabs onto the meat and won’t let go. You’d think after a few seconds it’d give up but this is one brazen bird. Watch how long it takes for this kookaburra to prove it deserves the snack – it’s not until the guy releases the meat from his mouth that the kooka finally flies off with a well-earned meal. Wow!
