PigeonPIGEONS. Sky rats. Carriers of contagion and scourge of public art installations across the world.
Well now we can add ‘treason’ to their list of crimes, after one of the little buggers was caught spying on India for Pakistan.
Luckily, the fluffy-chested mole was captured before he could report back and is currently under armed guard.
The white-coloured bird was found by a local resident in India’s Punjab state, which borders Pakistan, and taken to a police station 40 kilometres (25 miles) from the capital Amritsar.
The pigeon had a ring around its foot and a Pakistani phone number and address stamped on its body in red ink.
Naturally, this could only mean one thing. Spying bastard.
Officials have directed that no-one should be allowed to visit the pigeon, which police say may have been on a “special mission of spying”.
And BBM thought hanging a monkey in Hartlepool for being French was bad. Actually we just thought it was funny but the point stands.
