    In short words: My pigeon bites the living daylights out of people and is afraid of hands. She was raised since she was a baby and is only 4 months old. What do I do? TL;DR version Heya!

    They definitely do! I'm just wondering if anyone's dove bites them like mine does. His bites never hurt and we have an awesome relationship so I'm not concerned.

    I looked outside from the window and saw a cat sitting on the grass; saw something moving in front of it and immediately knew it was a pigeon! I ran out and chased the cat away, and found a small pigeon on the grass; It's breathing and seems otherwise ok, but it has a small bite in the wing...
