Pigeons

1 post / 0 new

I have to agree with the person who wrote about the bad rap that Thom gives to pigeons. I am a volunteer and on the Board of Directors of the Wild Bird Rehab in Denver. We take in injured, sick and abandoned baby birds. We get a lot of pigeons that have been poisoned. I would like everyone who does not acknowledge that pigeons are animals that feel pain and fear, to hold and comfort a pigeon who has just been poisoned. They have convulsions, their eyes are spinning around. It is a pretty terrible way to die.

A few years, our Republican governor, Bill Owens, bragged about his pigeon poisening program. Not only does the pigeon die, but another animal might pick up the bird and feed it to their babies - poisoning them also. We are all connected and are all worth something in the scheme of things.

Thom, please quit maligning these magnificent birds. You are so influential to so many people and you are not helping the plight of these sweet birds.

Thank you.

If You Want to Win, Go Progressive

The big question right now is whether to call Hillary Clinton a progressive, or a "moderate."
