IBM has helped to rescue a stubborn pigeon which refused to leave the front doors of its New York offices.
According to local press reports, the bird had been flapping about from door to door at Big Blue's Sterling Forest, New York, offices for some time, prompting it to call in a local animal shelter.
The Warwick Humane Society (WHS) advised IBM to feed it and give it a box to keep it warm if it refused to leave, until someone could come to rescue it.
After visiting two local kittens in the area, a vet from WHS called in to the offices to check on Big Blue's feathery friend.
Suzyn Barron, president of WHS, soon came to the bird's rescue and scooped it up in a towel to take it back to the shelter.
She told the Times-Herald Record newspaper:
"Fortunately, I had a traveling companion with me, other than the two kittens, so the pigeon was held by Dr Pam Shultz of Orchard Grove Animal Hospital, on the way back to the shelter.
"Dr Shultz assured me that she wouldn't loose her hold on the pigeon, since a loose pigeon in a moving vehicle would not be good."
The pigeon is now living in a barn until the weather warms up and could not be reached for comment.
