Pigeons wearing hat glued "Make American Great Again" have been spotted in Las Vegas which appears to be a sarcastic statement of loyalty to President Donald Trump and a mock protest of Nevada's coming Democratic presidential caucuses.
A total of 25 pigeons were released where one bird was seen with a small orange wig glued on its head which resembled the president Donald Trump's hairpiece, reported NBC News.
All the other 24 were seen wearing hats glued "Make American Great Again" on it, an anonymous group calling itself "P.U.T.I.N." (Pigeons United to Interfere Now) has claimed responsibility for the act.the group told in an email to The NBC News.
The birds were released purposely on the eve of Wednesday's Democratic debate in Las Vegas Nevada.
The group also released a video that shows one of the birds also had a small orange wig glued to their head resembling the president Donald Trump's hairpiece.
"Most have returned. We expect to see the rest tonight or tomorrow," the group said.
While the stunt has drawn some laughs, Mariah Hillman, who runs Lofty Hopes, a Las Vegas pigeon rescue organization, called the act "animal cruelty."
In December, videos of three pigeons wearing miniature red cowboy hats went viral after they were seen on Las Vegas streets.
"It started here with the press making fun of it, the police didn't do anything about it, and now it's grown into this, so when is it going to stop, and who's going to do something about it?" Hillman said Thursday.
Hillman and her volunteers are setting traps in hope of removing the pigeons' hats before rehabilitating and releasing the birds.
The pigeons are wearing the hats with the help of eyelash glue.
"It doesn't matter what kind of glue it is. It is still, in fact, cruelty, because you are impairing their vision," Hillman said, adding that her organization rescues many birds, such as wedding-release pigeons and racing pigeons, that are trained to return to their flocks.
"There's not always a guarantee that they'll return, because they can get injured or killed before that happens," he added.
