A pigeon that was suspected of being a Chinese language undercover agent has been cleared of wrongdoing and launched following a interval of months-long captivity. Sure, you learn that proper and, no, I’m not fucking with you.

The fowl in query was apparently picked up by regulation enforcement in India eight friggin’ months in the past after a number of safety guards determined that the fowl appeared suspicious.

The New York Occasions notes that the fowl was “caught lurking” at a global port in Mumbai. Members of a particular regulation enforcement workforce, the Central Industrial Safety Drive, determined that the fowl may be as much as no good and the unlucky animal was drummed into what presumably handed for fowl jail on the native station.

The rationale that the cops discovered the fowl suspicious was that it was outfitted with particular rings on its legs, one among which was embedded with a microchip. The pigeon additionally had writing on its legs that was etched in Chinese language cursive. Birds have been used for espionage before (in actual fact, the CIA has a weird history of utilizing pigeons to spy on individuals). That mentioned, it appears considerably protected to imagine that the peak of animal espionage is previously.

The rings and the chip had been finally despatched to a forensic lab for evaluation, whereas the fowl was despatched to remain at a Mumbai veterinary hospital. Ultimately, police received the outcomes of the {hardware} evaluation again and located that the microchip in query tracked the fowl’s location. After analyzing the fowl’s journey patterns, the investigator tasked with investigating the fowl determined that it was most likely a misplaced racing pigeon from Taiwan.

Problematically, police by no means went again to the veterinary hospital to inform the group that the fowl’s case had been closed. It was solely simply freed this week, after employees from the hospital, together with animal rights activists with PETA India, lobbied the federal government to authorize its launch.
