Although no news has arrived about what the Australian authorities have done towards this bird, which symbolizes peace, the symbolism of the event refers us to global fears that have become terrifying the world, and scrutiny has become of everything that comes from abroad, even if it is a symbol of peace.
The Australian Department of Agriculture revealed that it plans to cull this pigeon, which arrived by mistake, coming from the United States, after traveling 13,000 kilometers.
The ministry stated that the reason for executing the pigeon was for violating quarantine procedures, and the presence of fears that it might carry infectious diseases to local animals and birds, from abroad.
The ministry added, in its statement: "The euthanasia of this pigeon is the best way to protect the poultry sector and wild birds in the country."
But the issue sparked great reactions in society, which prompted the authorities to say that they would take into account the calls to save the lives of pigeons.
The ministry did not rule out the possibility of "repatriation" of this pigeon to the United States if the American side agreed.
