Pigeon Packs Papoose — and It’s a Canary

Delivering a pet canary “piggyback,” to a ten-year-old girl in a New York hospital, was a stunt chosen to open a national wild-life program a few weeks ago. The picture above shows the canary nestling in a tiny cockpit fastened to the back of a homing pigeon, all ready for its twenty-mile air jaunt.

    The pigeon went nuts due to the incessant repetition of “I tawt I taw a puddy tat!” as they flew over Queens.
