A pink pigeon was spotted near The Rock shopping center in Bury, near Manchester, on Sept. 4, 2023. On September 15, Bury North Police said their officers spotted a pink pigeon while on patrol. According to the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the pigeon was artificially dyed. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals expressed concern for the welfare of the bird, telling the Manchester Evening News that: “If someone has intentionally painted the pigeon’s feathers this is very worrying as it could cause health problems, impair their ability to fly and make them more vulnerable to predators.”
