Mike Tyson and his Pet Pigeons

Boxing is one of the most aggressive sports on earth and you’d be forgiven if you never imagined that one of its biggest and strongest champions found solace and comfort in a small frail bird like the pigeon.

Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. Mike Tyson and his pet pigeons have shown the world that pets can make a real difference in the way we interact with our environment. They have shown that developing a caring relationship with an animal companion can create calm and introduce you to a range of emotions you might not otherwise experience.
