Video shows NYC pigeons shove one into oncoming subway train

Not even pigeons are safe from subway shoves.

A pair of New York City pigeons mercilessly tossed a third bird into the path of a moving train, video shows.

In the clip posted on Reddit Tuesday, the squabs are seen tussling on the platform at Fourth Avenue/Ninth Street station in Brooklyn, about five feet from the tracks.

Two of the birds then surround their hapless counterpart — and steer the poor critter towards the tracks, edging him closer and closer as the train enters the station.

“No, what? Nah, they’re killing the pigeon?! No way they’re killing this pigeon!” one rider can be heard saying as the bully birds force their soon-to-be victim to his likely end.

The doomed pigeon then falls off the platform edge just before the train came through to finish the deed — amid screams of terror and “Yo!” in the background.

“Only in new york,” the video caption said.

It was not immediately clear when the video was filmed, or whether the winged victim survived.
