Poor thing! I don't believe it flew across the ocean but either way they shouldn't kill it! If it's that big if a concern then they can quarantine it! I mean they could also send it back to America but that's not very likely since that would cost money.
Its silly. Its not a racer despite what they say, so there's no way it would have made that trip. Also, don't people realize that you can but counterfeit ARPU bands in other countries? Look on eBay! There used to be a seller from Australia. The bird could be from Australia despite the band.

Yeah I did actually notice that it looked more like some sort of fancy pigeon than a racer. I didn't realize that counterfeit pigeon leg bands were a thing though!

Yes, people are stupid at times... Like, seriously??? We are racing pigeons, why are you cheating!!?

One moron this year made a fake ARPU band that started with a 0. ARPU doesn't make bands that start with 0. Needless to say, he lost his racing rights!

The point in counterfeit bands is.... In racing, there are OB and YB races. Well, if you make bands a year or more in advance with a year yet to come, you can race an old bird that's more reliable in a Young bird race. It happens quite a bit sadly.

In the wise words of @cavemanrich "where money is cheaters are" :old

'It is from AU with a counterfeit band. It's a hen and not a homer. Lol
Alan Archer made a vid debunking the story. :)
Edit - I see @Birbseeb posted the vid. :thumbsup ,
