Arizona bird rescue seeks owner of bedazzled vest-clad pigeon

Bird found near Peoria intersection


PEORIA, Ariz. (KGUN/KWBA) -- A bird rescue center in Peoria is trying to find the owner of one colorfully dressed pigeon.

Jody Kieran, the director of Fallen Feathers, said Friday that nobody has come forward to claim ownership of a pigeon found wearing a bedazzled vest.

The Arizona Republic reported that someone found the fine-feathered friend near an intersection and brought it to the rescue center. The organization posted a picture of the bird and the vest to Facebook.

Kieran said the pigeon appears friendly and well taken care of by its owner. She said she will wait a month before putting the bird up for adoption.

Kieran said it's not uncommon for people to keep pigeons as pets.
