But the video isn't free of controversy. Some commenters point out that despite his good intentions, Sambatti may have been doing more harm than good. "All birds go into a trance-like state if you put them on their back," one commenter wrote. "If they're healthy they do come round when they are put back on their feet, as this one did. That's why you never see birds in that position in nature unless they're dead. Far from being a hero, he's actually putting the poor bird through horrible stress."
Other commenters didn't want their happy ending to be marred by such concerns, since they believed the bird to be better off than before: "[W]hat is it with people and their negative comments ... you do not know the circumstances or exactly what was going on so keep your comments to yourself if you don't have anything good to say."
