Man Spends Weeks Earning Pigeon's Trust for Rescue


Occurred on April 25, 2020 / Paris, France

Info from Licensor: "So during the first few weeks of lockdown in Paris, I missed human interaction, being a sociable guy and living by myself. So I began feeding the pigeons, as although they get a bad rep, I like most animals and I figured that they'd probably be hungrier than usual with everybody in quarantine and no scraps on the go! I then noticed one pigeon in particular, who had his legs tied together with a bit of string. I hate to see any animals needlessly suffering, so I made it my quarantine objective to help him - which was no easy job - strangely enough, pigeons aren't huge fans of humans coming at them! But in the end, after weeks of perseverance feeding him and earning his trust - I succeeded!"
