Long John Pigeon

This was one of the strangest sights I have seen. A one legged pigeon, happily balancing on one leg. Far too frequently, the pigeons sit on electric wires and their claws get caught on the wires and then they have to almost tear off the claws or in this case, the entire leg. They could also be diseased, but the pigeon was quite happy, hopping around neatly on one leg, balancing pretty nicely on one leg. Quite an impressive sight.
