Act caught on video
1 0

A Facebook posting says a woman caught on video in a Montreal subway train apparently plucking and eating a bird was only preparing "country food" for a meal at home.

A woman, who identifies herself on Facebook as Christina David and an Inuk, says she's not "crazy" and wasn't eating the bird raw, as has been reported.

A YouTube video posted earlier this month appears to show a woman sitting down, bent over, pulling the feathers off what looks like a bird and then eating it.

Montreal police spokesman Manuel Couture said investigators haven't been in contact with David and haven't confirmed the identity of the woman in the video.    

The man filming the video says he's about to vomit, while other passengers are seen moving to the other end of the subway car, but David says she is surprised at the uproar the video has caused.

In a lengthy message thread on Facebook, she accuses other passengers and the media of over reacting about the bird.
