Hello, My name is Emily Adams and I'm a student at California State University, Chico. Our psychology department currently uses White Carneau pigeons in simple non-invasive experimenting. However, once the year is over, 30 pigeons are euthanized. This has been going on for the past 10 years.

I was wondering if you or any other member of this site knows of any sanctuary (or some kind of home where) these pigeons can go instead. I'm not having any luck with bird sanctuaries in the Northern California area so far.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you!

I appreciate your concern, and am glad you found this Forum...

I have to say...I hate hearing this..it's just plain wrong. Offhand I know of no place which could take that number, and I would guess that trying to place such a large number EVERY YEAR is going to be daunting. It just makes me very sad.

...keep on it, and maybe some other west-coast members can provide some input.....
