Pigeon’s 43 cab journey to sanctuary
A hurt pigeon was transported 25 miles to a wildlife centre in a taxi after a kind-hearted passer by found its plight.
Jeanette Bowron found the bird, which had an injured leg, being pecked by crows next to a hectic Birmingham road.
After being taken to a vet, it was then sent on the ₤ 43 journey by taxi.
Sanctuary owner Geoff Grewcock stated the bird, now called Lucky, had a splint on its leg which need to help it practically fully recover.
She said she had actually spotted the bird being pecked by crows in Tyburn Roadway, Erdington, on Sunday and employed the aid of a good friend to capture it.
Ms Bowron put it in her garage over night before taking it to the vet the next day.
The vet detected a damaged leg and recommended putting the bird down or taking it to Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary.
‘Deserve to live’
As she did not know the area and was due at work, Ms Bowron chose to require a taxi.
” I can’t believe other people would not do the same,” she said.
” I paid ₤ 43 for the trip, a ₤ 2 pointer for the chauffeur and ₤ 20 donation to the sanctuary for food for the bird.”
” It’s actually kind of her, as we typically see animals that have been abused or that people do not want,” Mr Grewcock said.
” Individuals will state ‘it’s a pigeon, so exactly what?’, but that’s unfair. All animals are worthy of to live.”
