…here’s the dart pigeon.
From Hot Tipper Scott:
Hello Last Days,
Not sure how many dart-pigeon sightings you have received in the past few months, but I was working downtown yesterday and spotted this pigeon at the corner of 3rd and Union with two darts in him—one completely through his head and the other lodged in his wing. Looks like the same pigeon that was featured earlier—amazing that it is still alive.
I managed to take about 100 photos while attracting the curiosity of passers-by, who seemed to be having almost too much fun: ‘That is fucked up!” (yes) and ‘Did you do that to him?!’ (no) and ‘Take my picture with it! (huh).
I hate pigeons as much as the next guy, but this is wrong and effed up. I called Seattle animal control in case they were interested in obtaining the bird and hopefully catching those responsible for this. My call was met with indifference, though I suppose I can understand. I hung around for about an hour, but they never showed up.
