This is the shocking viral video with nearly 6 million views showing two young men catching city pigeons with a fishing net.

The video was filmed in the Mexican capital, Mexico City, and has been viewed over 5.8 million times on social media.

In the video, a young man approaches a group of pigeons on a pavement with a fishing net.

He then throws the next over the birds, with some of the pigeons managing to escape.

Several of the animals are stuck in the net, and the man gathers them before stuffing them into a friend’s rucksack.

The two young men then walk away, seemingly unaware that they are being filmed.

The startling scenes were recorded next to the Church of the Immaculate Conception of Santo del Agua.

The video was posted on social media, with one caption reading: "When you order a chicken quesadilla [in Mexico City], I feel like it is not going to be chicken."

Social media users were not sure why the young men were catching pigeons in the city centre.

One user commented: "Well if there is nothing to eat, what do you want them to do? At the end of the day those animals are categorised as rats with wings."

It is unclear why the men hunted the pigeons and no arrests have been reported.
