I know alot of people who would have left the bird to suffer. Such a cruel world we live in. OP did the right thing, putting it out of its misery. RIP little bird.

It's fairly easy to run over animals since most of them tend to have the same reaction to an oncoming lawn mower, run aimlessly in circles, then freeze and forget that they have the power to get out of the way. They usually manage to run right into the mower as well for some reason. I always feel horrible when that happens.

They were playing Chicken. But who won? The bird never moved. Clearly neither did the lawnmower. Lawnmower wins on a technicality? I don't know what I'm saying anymore. Ignore me.

How do you know that the bird was good enough to go to Bird Heaven? Maybe he was a total bastard and was condemned to Bird Hell (which is the same place as Cat Heaven.)

Sorry about mentioning Bird Heaven, but certainly, you must believe in Pitbull Heaven (which is also Cat Hell). The saints at the gates are Chris Brown, Enrique Iglesisas and Marc Anthony.

You have to be dead to become a saint.

There's no heaven, sorry bud.

#34 -- that's a pitbull. Baustigt is from Australia, so I don't know what that breed is called Down Under, but in the US, that's a pitbull. #36 -- this is FML, not Theology class. Anyone who dumps Jennifer Lopez can never be a saint -- that ass is divine and rejecting it is heresy!

#4, there is no such thing has bird heaven, dog heaven, cat heaven etc, sorry... If heaven is actually real (Yes I believe in God and go to church), then I'm pretty sure the animals go to the same heaven as humans

I get putting it out of its misery, but... doing it by mowing over it a second time?! Why would you do that? It's just weird. Most people would have done it differently.

Break its neck, maybe? Hit it very hard with something? Not make the poor thing into a shredded tweet joke.

It's alot easier to mow it again. Cause the time your wasting to go find something to kill it with. It's gonna suffer. If u just do it again quickly it dies and no suffering . That quick and it will be less time for it to suffer.

You all assume it was guaranteed that mowing it again would be successful. I think they were simply pointing out that the amount of pain suffered from a lawn mower would be much higher than a blunt object to the head. It was a shitty situation either way - I don't think there was a move you could have pulled that wouldn't be horrible.

I'm guessing 6 meant being mowed over in the first place. Moving over it a second time, as gruesome as it is, probably was the best option in this scenario.

Indeed! I'm a golf course superintendent. One of my operators was run over by a rotary mower. He lost half of his foot.. It was absolutely horrifying. P.S. Most homeowners lawn mower blades aren't even sharp. The poor bird was most likely beat to death and torn apart by a blunt object spinning at a couple thousand RPMs. Ouch. P.P.S. No, we didn't run him over and finish him off......

Creepy... I litterarly JUST saw a picture of a dead bird right before reading this FML! It wasn't crushed into pieces, though... That must be uncomfortable. :/ It sounds barbaric, but you did the right thing. If you hadn't killed it, it would suffer, then die anyway.
