A video has gone viral of a child showing how she trained her pet bird to attack on command.

The clip, posted by Twitter user @Apex_sH, shows the young girl turning to the camera and screaming. The bird then launches itself off its perch on the attack.

"My niece has her bird trained to attack anyone she screams at," the user wrote.

Twitter users were delighted by the trick, with many comparing the young girl to Game of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen, or a scene from Shrek 3 where Snow White commands an army of birds.

"Why the bird didn't even think twice about it tho? Didn't even look , just FLEW," one person wrote.

"She's very cute but she might be from hell," another person said.

Others have poured cold water on the video and one person questioned its validity.

"It's most likely fake lol," one person said.
