Awesome news! They did not mention anything about a ring or some other crap they put on animals before they are released so hopefully this means that they did not do it to him (thankfully the man who saved him did not call him it like everybody else in that article!!!!)!

I hope the reduction in excess pigeon population is noticeable. Peregrines predate on city pigeons, therefore peregrines should be encouraged.

Very cool. Wish all wild animals could be released back into the world where they belong and have no fear of humans ever hurting them again.
