Big Jim’s House

Weekdays 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

This poor lady had a run in with a wild animal right in her living room, Well actually right in her chimney.

Watch as this woman pulls a Vulture from her wood burning stove’s chimney.

As the lady mentioned, at first her and her family thought it was a squirrel or rabbit or some type of rodent. But when they finally got it freed from the chimney they realized it was a vulture.

Here is the TikTok video:


Something has been making noise in our chimney. we had to wait for it to make its way down, thinking it was a squirrel or some rodent...boy were we wrong...

Now time for a quick story for you. When I was maybe 8 or 9 years old, I got home from school and noticed my dad laying his head inside the fireplace. When I went over to see what was going on I could hear the sounds of birds in the chimney. I asked my dad what he was going to do, he told me to go grab my BB gun and my uncle would be over in a few minutes.

Even as a young kid, I knew what they were about to try. Once my uncle got there, they took turns shooting the BB gun up into the chimney. As the time passed, bird after bird came falling down from the celling. Now I remember thinking, there had to be a better way to get them out of there, but I was also super excited about it because it was like hunting.

Looking back now, I am sure there are a few people who wouldn’t be down with what they did but it was the early 90s and I don’t know how else they would have gotten them out.

Overall, I think this lady handled the situation best she could. She didn’t hurt herself or the vulture.

Now this bonus story is not an animal getting stuck.
