A ‘mutant pigeon’ with elongated legs has left people seriously disturbed on social media.

The clip was later shared on the @MacrodosingPod Twitter account where even more people were stunned with the odd looking bird.
The video was captioned: ‘Like different types of domestic dogs, domesticated pigeons come in all shapes and sizes like this Pouter pigeon.’
The bird is a domesticated breed known for its very large crop, endlessly long legs and feathered feet.
The English Pouter pigeon is a fancy pigeon from the United Kingdom. It was originated in England over many years of selective breeding.
In the video, the bird can be seen walking along a fence with an extremely puffed out chest.
Online viewers were baffled as they commented in shock while many referred to the bird as a ‘Pokemon’.
One person wote: ‘Looks like a bird ate another bird.’
Another said: ‘It’s like a Pokemon evolved.’

Another terrified person said: ‘I will never sleep again’.
While someone else said: ‘Wtf is that Pokemon’.
Another quipped: ‘This is someone trying to prove evolution by breeding pigeons back into velociraptors.’
While another concerned person said: ‘And like dogs, some of the resulting breeds are sins against nature, if not outright acts of animal cruelty just for existing.
‘Cool looking bird though, at least it looks like it can breathe.’
