The birds, deputies wrote, were used in "witchcraft."

I thought it was voodoo?

Feed the homeless.  Pigeons are tasty.

Starlings are far more numerous and far more destructive.

The headline is somewhat confusing. Were the birds intended for Santeria or were they previously used for Santeria rituals?

Too early for earworms.

Um, I think if they had been used for Santeria before, they would be dead.

You gave your snakes KFC? Original or crispy?

Maybe James May threw them infront of a Ukranian truck?

Thanks for the tip. If I see a pigeon today, I'll contact authorities.

What does sexual orientation have to do with any of this?

Don't worry about it.  They'll all come back.

Unless they get stuck in a chimney with an enciphered message strapped to their leg.

There's no way this'll spark a witchhunt. Impossible.

I think Santana and Pantera should form a supergroup named Santera (which is the spelling that my coffee-deprived brain read from the headline)...

Friend of mine from Florida posted a picture of the scar she got from punching a seagull mid flight. It was after the bag of doritos in her other hand.

This is about the 10th time I've seen this error here.   Not Hannah....

Heina:A revered and/or beautiful female, often a girlfriend, most likely from the Portuguese "reina," (HIGH-na), meaning "born in the country." In Spanish, "reina" (RAY-na), means "queen." The origin of the use of "heina" to mean "girlfriend" is most likely the Caribbean or South America (especially Brazil), where both Portuguese and Spanish influences exist.

So wait.  There are people who actually breed pigeons?

Yup. Typically retired old farts who race them. One of my friend's dads does... .he's got a coop in the back yard and does long-distance racing. They put little tracker anklets on them and bring hem hundreds of miles away, let them go, and wait for them to find their way home.

My great grandfather bred carrier pigeons.  Used to race them.

Racing pigeons just seems cruel.   Bring the animal 100s of miles away, then leave it to fend for itself, where its only hope is to get home before it starves or gets eaten.

Well. I'll be damned.  I learned something new today.

I wonder if it would work the other way around: Grab a bunch of old farts cooped up all day in the nursing home and drop them off a couple hundred miles away to see how long it takes them to get back.  For extra difficulty, line the way back with farmer's markets and bingo parlors.

You mean, they get to live like their wild bretheren?  That *IS* cruel.

Whoever killed those pigeons made some very dangerous enemies.

Mike Tyson also raises pigeons.
