Channel 9 Reporter Gets A BIG Fright Just Before Her Cross

A QLD reporter was left rattled today after a HUGE bird swooped in and landed on her shoulder just as she was about to cross to her newsroom.

The TODAY show team played the clip and reminisced about the time their own Stevie Jacobs had his own ‘bird attack’, when the chicken he was holding fluttered away with such rapid determination that he was scared out of his wits.

The video has gained traction after seeing how reporter Brittney Kleyn handled the ‘attack’, pleading for help before telling her cameraman that it “isn’t funny”.

Hahaha see for yourself!

Bird v Nine News Reporter

A very curious bird caused quite a stir for one of our Nine News reporters before her live cross yesterday! Of course, she's not the first reporter to have had an encounter with a rogue bird on the job... Stevie still has nightmares from his cockerel encounter! #9Today
