Seattle voted worst place to live, if you're a pigeon.


Someone is impaling pigeons in downtown Seattle with metal darts, and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is putting up $2,000 to help find out who.

The darts were fired from a blow gun, lodging directly behind the birds' eyes without penetrating their brains, Perry said.
The longer the darts remain, the higher the chance for the injury to get worse and infection to set in, she said. The end result: "a very, very painful death," Perry said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Seattle Animal Shelter at 206-386-7387.
