Good News that Needs Some More Help

Pigeons more often than not have no lobby. But through an organized campaign they got lucky – and help from the police. Now this first victory needs some more legal standing – and support.

“Following PETA’s groundbreaking exposé of Taiwan’s pigeon-racing industry, which revealed widespread gambling and bird deaths, police raided the largest pigeon-racing club in Taiwan, took club officials to the station for questioning, confiscated tens of thousands of dollars, and froze nearly $4 million in apparently illegal gambling proceeds in the club’s bank account. The hundreds of thousands of bird deaths per racing season are still being investigated by authorities for violations of Taiwan’s cruelty-to-animals laws.”
