How commuting pigeons have been dodging fares?

Commuting Pigeons

Pigeons have long been observed hitching rides on the subway with earthbound commuters.

Additionally, some people claim that the birds even know at which stop they should get off.

Following an invitation by a magazine, a number of readers wrote to tell about their own experiences with the feathered travelers.

One man, for example, wrote:

“ I regularly encountered a single pigeon of light reddish coloring boarding the underground metro train station and disembarking at the next station.”

Another man observed a similar spectacle as far back as 1965.

It would seem that pigeons have been dodging metro fares for more than 50 years!
