A shameful thing in Colorado, alas. Two CU students were seen beating a pigeon to death, and doing it "joyfully." Thankfully, someone saw and reported them. They have been ticketed, and more serious charges will be considered when they are arraigned on April 3, 2012. Not surprisingly, the comments on the article in the Boulder Daily Camera are mixed, some being typically ignorant of pigeons. Letters to the Daily Camera might be in order. Here's the link, though it is hard, sad reading:

Alas for our own species.

People that will do these things are like bullies. They would do the same thing to younger children. Needs be stopped before they get that far.

Sadly Boulder is the only city in Colorado that has pigeon protection laws in place, the rest of Colorado only has animal cruelty laws that provides some sort of protection. So not only they will get charges under cruelty but also for violating the sanctuary law which is only 1000 buck and 30 days in jail, but hey its a lot more than the rest of colorado would give anyone else

I totally agree!!

That is beyond sick. That is a violent tendancy that prevails in serial killer and what nots. If they cannot rationalize their thoughts and believe violence is "fun" and "enjoyable" - to the extend of murder - there is something REALLY wrong with them!! Unless they seek help, they will grow up to be the worst kind of humans, and maybe cause harm to other humans.

Do we need a human to die in their hands before the authorities will do something with these kind of derangeds?

What I found just as disturbing as the story were many of the comments underneath it - that so many people can not see such obviously perverted brutality as something to condemn, is truly sad and scary.

True! The comments in the link disturbed me as well. No compassion at all! Killing a life with glee and enjoying it... is SO sick.
