Granted they're both emergency services numbers, but the U.K. uses 999, not 911.

Wheezing Pigeon is a good name for a indie band.

Typically, a pigeon wheezing would be a symptom of Pneumonia. Usually by the time they are symptomatic, they will likely die with or without treatment since birds hide their illness well.

FTA: Cleveland police alone report a 35% increase in the year to Juloy 2012

Juloy? Are those silly foreigners typing in their ridiculous accents now?

...report a 35% increase in the year to Juloy 2012...

I'm going to guess that the author is Australian.

Wholey shiat, they have Cleveland in the UK? Does it suck as much as the Ohio version?

And calling in because your pigeon is wheezing might be useful if you're tracking outbreaks of avian flu.

In his defence I must let people know that it was a lovely, plump, speckily pigeon called Speckled Jim, which he hand reared from a chick and which was his only childhood friend.

I call 911 when I'm a little bit sad and lonely.

Juloy is the month in the West Country between Juune and Awgust.

I know it wasn't a lovely spring day, but it was a Sunday and he should have known better to take his pet pigeon to the park when my sweetheart and me are there with our bag of peanuts. Yes all the world seems in tune. Yes I had plenty of skittles and beer.

Maybe he's just tired after a prolonged squawk?

Mr. Ekshun: I'm going to guess that the author is Australian.

The Guardian used to be so famous for it's typos that it was known as The Grauniad, it's nice to see they still keep the old traditions alive in the age of spell check.

Depends on how prompt and directed the treatment is, really. If it's bacterial secondary to some stressor, it'll be a lot easier to deal with than fungal. But I've seen some impressively bad fungal infections get turned around too.

Thank's captain obvious.

/ 911 is a superiror number. It's harder to butt dial.

I called 999 and for some reason they gave me this wristband with a digital "5" on it.

True story: I was doing some contracted work for a lady who owns a local business... while I was there, her 17 year old daughter called frantic because their dog appeared to be having a medical problem. Of course, mom says load the dog into the car and take it to an emergency vet clinic... daughter says NO! and demands to know the number for animal 911. What? Honey... you cant do that, there isnt one. Daughter refused to believe it and repeatedly demanded the number for a dog ambulance... THEY DONT EXIST HONEY, TAKE THE DOG YOURSELF... this convo went on for like 15 minutes until the mom finally just left to go pick the dog up herself.

Its amazing how out of touch with reality some people are...

The proper way is 0118 999 881 999 119 725 3. Otherwise it will be hard to remember.
