'Miss Pigeon' of Gulf priced at Dh73,000
More than 1,500 pigeons were flown into Bahrain this week to participate in a rare pageantry that ended up in the crowning of one of them as “Miss Pigeon.”
Newspapers said nearly 300 pigeon owners from the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and other countries attended the three-day show in Manama.
The most beautiful pigeon was selected by a panel comprising bird experts from the GCC, Australia, Germany and other countries, they said.
“Organizers of the event said the winning pigeon is expected to fetch more than $20,000 (Dh73,000),” the Saudi news network Alarabiya said without identifying the owner of “Miss Pigeon.”
