Singapore – The Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (Singapore) (ACRES) is appealing to the public for any information on the case of a pigeon with a sharpened wooden stick stuck on its eye.

On Thursday (Jan 7), ACRES took to Facebook to inform the public of an injured pigeon spotted along 547 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 lift lobby around 10:30 am on Jan 6, 2021. ACRES was alerted by a concerned member of the public as the pigeon had a DIY dart lodged on its eye.

“The poor pigeon who was disoriented was rescued with the help of the caller who kept watch on the pigeon,” said ACRES.

According to the post, someone had sharpened a wooded stick and used it as a dart to puncture the pigeon’s right eye. The DIY dart was lodged deeply into the bird’s eye.
