  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, my housemates & I found an injured pigeon under a car outside our house a couple weeks ago. It looks like he might have been attacked by a cat, as one of the neighbor's cats was stalking him when I found him. His wing at the time had a bloody gash & he was holding it quite low. We kept him...

    I was out with my family on a quick trip to the gas station when we noticed a pigeon all "pumpernickled" up (as my Mom would call it) like a cat in the middle of the other lane.
