German police hunt stolen pigeon worth $184,000
Berlin — Police in Germany are looking for a missing pigeon, and any finder could be in line for a $12,250 reward.
Duesseldorf police said Tuesday that the 6-year-old male homing pigeon, named AS 969, was stolen at some point on Saturday night from a locked aviary in the city’s suburbs.
They say the light gray bird is valued by its owner at $184,000 and police suspect the thief or thieves were “connoisseurs” as it was the most valuable in an aviary full of other homing pigeons.
The owner offered a $12,250 reward for the bird’s recovery.
