The video below made me think of two things: 1) How careful you would have to be to remove chewing gum from a delicate hummingbird? and 2) How in the hell did this little bird get tangled up in a wad of gum? If I understand correctly, hummingbirds have to buzz around and eat constantly to maintain their rapid metabolism. Did this little guy catch the gum in mid-flight?
Kudos to the person saving this bird. I don't know that I would have the guts. I'd be afraid of pulling a leg off or something equally as fatal.
