A strange website
I stumbled on while searching for information
on homing pigeon
s. Their only apparent service
is releasing "doves
" which are actually homing pigeon
s at wedding
s, and other "special
" events. They also do a big release
s at the opening of Dodger Stadium
For some reason this really creeps me out. I can't exactly put my finger on it but there is something so false and arbitrary about releasing a bunch of pigeons trained to come back at someone's gravesite that really bothers me. Maybe there is just something false about the symbolism here or the idea of a tribute/sacrifice made for someone that you can reuse endlessly.
The site is at www.whitedoverelease.com and, don't worry folks, they do accept checks!
