Someone Has Been Putting Little Cowboy Hats on Pigeons in Las Vegas


OK, for the strangest story of the week, already, it has been discovered that someone is putting little red cowboy hats on wild pigeons in Las Vegas, Nevada.

People have been spotting pigeons high-stepping around the city with the headgear on and it has the whole town talking.

No one knows why or how the birds seem gussied up for a TV western.

The above is not the only Vegas denizen to catch the birdy fedoras.

At first everyone in town was laughing about the stunt, but then some started worrying that the hats may be harming the birds.

According to Fox News, Mariah Hillman, who operates a Las Vegas-based pigeon rescue called Lofty Hopes, told KVVU-TV that at first, “I was like, ‘Oh my god, that’s cute'” before backtracking and asking herself, “Wait a minute — how did they get those hats on there?”

“Did they glue them? And what does that mean for them?” Hillman said. “Is it something that’s going to impede their flight or attract predators?”

Indeed, one must assume that these hats could very well interfere with the aerodynamics of flight for the birds.

Hillman pleaded to the public to lend her a hand in catching these birds and doffing their hats.

“If you see these birds, just feed them until I get here. I’m only 3 miles away and I’ll come trap them,” she told the local media.

Let’s face it, the stunt is kind of funny. But it certainly is not a good idea for the health of the birds.

Some speculate that a promoter for the rodeo making a stop in Vegas this week got a little too much into his job. But no evidence has come to light to prove that guess.
