Pigeons with ‘Make America Great Again’ hats glued to their head released in Las Vegas

Los Angeles, CA – As national attention turned to Nevada amid a Presidential visit, a Democratic debate, and Saturday’s Democratic Caucus, one group chose to make their political point using live pigeons. A group calling itself Pigeons United to Interfere Now (P.U.T.I.N.) took credit for gluing small hats, and one wig, on a flock of pigeons before releasing them in Downtown Las Vegas on Tuesday, February 18, 2020.

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) urges Americans on both sides of the aisle to leave animals out of politics. “It is unconscionable to affix items on these birds, inhibiting their eyesight and exposing them to other potential dangers for the sake of a political prank,” says spcaLA President, Madeline Bernstein.
