UK Pigeon Lost in Flight Home, Found 4,000 Miles In The USA

Bob, a racing pigeon from the UK, was lost on his flight back to Tyneside in Tyneside. He ended up about 4,000 miles from home. 

The homing peacock set sail from Guernsey, Channel Islands three weeks ago. The race was to return him to the north east of England. He should have returned in about 10 hours. The prized pigeon disappeared and nobody knew what happened.

On July 6, an elderly man discovered the bird in his backyard in Mexia in Monrow County, Alabama.
