Pigeons wearing tiny cowboy hats are flying around Las Vegas and people have questions

LAS VEGAS – Pigeons come in many shapes and sizes.

In Las Vegas, some wear cowboy hats.

A viral Facebook video from a Las Vegas resident named Bobby Lee showing pigeons with tiny  cowboy hats apparently glued to their heads has led a local pigeon  rescue group to launch an operation unlike any other.

“We got a couple good leads,” said Mariah Hillman, co-founder of Lofty  Hopes, on Tuesday. “We found Cluck Norris. We’ve been chasing him all  day.”

As of Tuesday afternoon, Hillman and her  small crew were putting up a trap to capture Cluck Norris the cowboy  pigeon about a half-mile from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas campus.

“It looks like glue,” Hillman said after her daughter got close enough to  see the hat atop Cluck’s head. “There are feathers stuck to the hat.”

After Cluck is captured, Hillman will try to remove the hat.

“Hopefully it’s not impeding his vision,” she said. “It’s a living being. Every living being has a right to his own life.”

The viral video showing Cluck and a second cowboy pigeon has led to some entertaining social media commentary.
