    Are you sure they are illegal to own? I've seen many zoos and private collections with them

    Check into the legalities for your specific location regarding exotic species.

    Zoos operate under different licenses than normal people and have the appropriate paperwork for having them.

    LOL oh yes zoo,s can have many species that the normal crowd cant, one reason on this pigeon is because it a warm weather species which cant tolerate cold weather and if allowed into this it would be smuggled into many colder states which they were for short time .....
