Apparently, a pigeon appeared outside an elementary school in Montana on the morning of May 21st, and began to behave disruptively. The school principal and a teacher were having trouble capturing it. They knew one of their students was a pigeon owner and asked her to help, thinking she might know of a way to catch the bird. When the girl saw the pigeon, she realized it was her pet, named Foresta, who had been missing since the day before. Foresta was 15 miles from home, and had never previously visited the school.

Was this coincidence? Did the pigeon really know its owner was in the school? Was it trying to find her? We will never know for sure, but I would like to believe the pigeon had figured out this way of getting back with its owners. Our pets continually amaze us with their courage, loyalty, and intelligence. We are so lucky to have them as our friends.
What has your pet done that has absolutely amazed you?
