Indian authorities capture pigeon operative

According to the Telegraph Indian police are holding a pigeon under armed guard after it was caught on an alleged spying mission. The white-coloured bird was found by a local resident in India's Punjab state, which borders Pakistan, and taken to a police station 25 miles from the capital Amritsar.

The pigeon had a ring around its foot and a Pakistani telephone number and address stamped on its body in red ink. Ramdas Jagjit Singh Chahal, a police officer, said he suspected that the pigeon had landed on Indian soil from Pakistan with a message, although no trace of a note has been found.

Officials have directed that no-one be allowed to visit the pigeon, which police say may have been on a "special mission of spying". The bird has been medically examined and was being kept in an air-conditioned room under police guard.

Senior officers have asked to be kept updated on the situation three times a day, according to a report from the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency.

This is a sensible move but the Indian authorities are wrong to suspect the hand of the Pakistani Government behind this incursion. This is the work of Big Pigeon who watches, who has a plan. He has eyes everywhere I tell you... Listen out for the pigeon voices and you will hear that they talking. You will hear them talking coup, COUP...

We have both pigeons and doves in our garden, but I am far more concerned about the recent invasion of Indian Mynahs. What could that portend?

You are Cherie. Make your peace with your maker while you cant!

Mynahs are simply the Pigeons's useful idiots Steve! They ahve been egged on by Big Pigeon himself!

Just call a redneck and there are no more pigeons. In fact with the economy in bad shape we may have plenty of urban rednecks around.
