They went to far! Almost all those pigeons would better be euthanized because of tons of health problems and body shapes, and feathers that make their live a nightmare.As long as a pigeon is made for living by itself it's ok, not when it has become a monster like pugs or persian cats. Cute and fluffy should never be above healthy, al I see i constant suffering
