Furious student told he can’t get rid of pooing pigeon he found nesting in his room unless he gets a licence
A FURIOUS student has been told he can’t get rid of a pooing pigeon nesting in his room unless he gets LICENCE.
Ben Wise, 19, was spitting feathers when he found the bird tucked behind a screen at his home in Sheffield.
The pigeon, who has left poo, feathers and debris scattered all over his digs, has laid two eggs meaning Ben can’t move it without council permission.
Filming the chaos, he says: “Tell me why a bird has f****** gotten into my room and s*** everywhere while I’ve been at home?”
Ben, who is studying at Sheffield Hallam University, describes the scene as a “f*cking joke” before turning the camera to show the pigeon on its nest behind a large piece of artwork at the side of the room.
Making light of the situation, Ben then names his new roommate “Danny” as the bird looks unfazed by his return.
He adds: “Apparently he’s been living in my room, so I don’t know what I’m going to do as pre-drinks are in ten minutes!”
Speaking today, Ben revealed he now has a new name for his visitor.
He said: “I went home over Easter and left the window open so the room smelled nice and fresh when I got back – only to find that Danny had moved in.”
Ben revealed he is now stuck with his lodger.

He said: “There are two eggs in the nest and the videos show them.
“There is no action being taken towards the nest as you need to apply for a licence to move it which I am reluctant to do as I don’t want to disrupt Danny and his family.”
The clip was shared on Twitter by Ben’s friend Ellie-May where it has amassed over 76,000 views.
