PETA Pigeon Racing Protest WindsorAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Windsor, UK. 1 July, 2020. A bandaged giant pigeon on crutches holds a sign reading ‘End Pigeon-Racing Cruelty’ at a protest by PETA UK activists outside Windsor Castle. Animal rights charity PETA UK is calling on the Queen, currently isolating at Windsor Castle, to cut ties with pigeon racing following a PETA US investigation which revealed that all eight birds sent by the Queen to participate in the 2020 South African Million Dollar Pigeon Race (SAMDPR) died in quarantine and that fewer than a quarter of the birds entered for the race subsequently complete it.
