Chandigarh, September 18

Most of us would be mystified looking at a pink pigeon. So are the people in the UK after a pink pigeon showed up in Bury town centre.

The bird was spotted accepting food from the locals as well as on rooftops in the area, BBC reported.

Greater Manchester Police said some of its officers on foot patrol had also come across the "rare pink pigeon in the town centre".

Locals are wondering whether the bird has been dyed or is naturally pink.

Samantha Brown, 43, said: "I saw someone give it a chip. Everyone's wondering why it's pink but it adds a bit of colour to the place. "I think it's dyed but who knows?"

"Officers are out on foot patrol this afternoon as part of #OpHeartbeat Officers quickly came across a rare pink pigeon in the town centre. Have you seen Burys Pink Pigeon yet? Let us know & come and say hi when you spot us." Greater Manchester Police post on Facebook read.

"Has anyone else seen this pink pigeon in Bury and does anyone know why it is pink?!" Samantha Brown, 43, told BBC, "I saw someone give it a chip. Everyone's wondering why it's pink but it adds a bit of colour to the place." She adds, "I think it's being dyed but who knows?"

Sometime back, in New York City, a pink pigeon was rescued by Wild Bird Fund after it was dyed bright pink for a gender reveal party.
