Meet Armando, The Million Pound Pigeon

No, unfortunately this isn’t about a Pigeon that weighs a million pounds, though that would be incredible.

So we guess pigeon racing is a pretty high-profile thing over across the pond, which, we are not about to judge because we’ve got our monster truck rallies and rodeos over here but come on!

These rats with wings are somehow super valuable and this one that’s been referred to as “Lewis Hamilton of pigeon racing” is actually worth over a million pounds ($1.3 million USD).

Even after this video we’re not sure what makes a pigeon worth over a million dollars but we’ll take their word…and tears for it.
