MONTREAL - Montreal police are looking for a woman who shocked commuters by plucking and eating a raw bird on a moving subway train.

One disgusted passenger filmed the scene in the subway, known as the metro, and posted the video to YouTube. He said the incident took place on July 1.

The clip shows a young woman seated in the metro car and wearing a bikini top and miniskirt. She can be seen leaning over a plastic bag, taking small items out of it.

Several passengers who approach her are seen quickly walking away with looks of shock on their faces.

"I'm going to vomit," the man who was videoing the scene can be heard saying. Moments later he added: "And she's eating it! She's eating it!"

Montreal police are trying to find the woman, whose face can't be seen in the clip.

"We'll start by finding her, then doing an interview with her," police spokesman Manuel Couture told QMI Agency.

"Then we'll see if we'll go for psychiatric care, criminal (charges), or both."

There is no law against plucking and eating a raw bird in the metro, but Couture says the woman could still face criminal charges.

"Given that it visibly upset people, we consider it to be disturbing the peace," said the police spokesman.
