Pigeons in cowboy hats spotted flying around Las Vegas
Posted On August 5, 2020
A Las Vegas animal rescue organisation is on the hunt for a pair of pigeons who were spotted with tiny cowboy hats attached to their heads.
The two birds were spotted by a Las Vegas resident named Bobby Lee, who filmed the pigeons and posted the clip on Facebook.
Lofty Hopes, a pigeon rescue organisation, swung into action to rescue the birds, which they have named.
Cluck Norris is the pigeon wearing a red cowboy hat, and Coolamity Jane wears a pink version.

Mariah Hillman, co-founder of Lofty Hopes, told CNN it looks like the tiny accessories were glued to the animals.
"When we saw them today, you could see some loose feathers in the glue around the hat," she said.
"It’s definitely a concern."
The rescue group has put out traps to try to catch the birds, and has created signs to raise awareness of their plight. Anyone who sees the birds is asked to call the organisation.
Some reports suggest a third bird in on the loose, wearing a brown cowboy hat. But Ms Hillman said her group has not been able to confirm it.
“We’ve got a couple of good leads,” she said.
“We found Cluck Norris. We’ve been chasing him all day.”
She aims to remove the hat, and said she hopes there has been no lasting damage.
“Hopefully it’s not impeding his vision,” she said. “It’s a living being. Every living being has a right to his own life.”
