Who is the pigeon's pink color for?
My daughter really likes pink. That's why she always tries to wear only pink clothes and chooses pink when she chooses or buys anything. Pink is a beautiful, magical color that is bright and leads people to an unknown world like a scene in a dream.
I like blue-based colors like Indian blue, cobalt blue, and ultramarine blue, but I also like pink. When I want to get energy from the picture, like the awakening effect of coffee, I add pink to the picture and sometimes look at it. When I do that, I feel that the engine is turned on in my heart without even realizing it. Pink is the only color that really gives off a lovely energy.
But I read a news today and was shocked. It was news from New York, where I live. A citizen rescued a pink pigeon and notified the rescue group. Since no pigeons are born all pink, rescue groups are starting to find out why this is happening. Meanwhile, this dove was dyed pink specifically for the gender reveal party.
Gender reveal parties are a tradition that originated in the United States, where pregnant women throw elaborate parties prior to delivery to announce the gender of their children.
They are often conscious. Like cutting a cake or popping a balloon, the contents are colored blue or pink to indicate the gender of the child. Perhaps someone was trying to hint by dyeing the dove pink.
But please don't take away their own color from such a small animal.
This isn't animal abuse and it's not hair plucking, so you might be thinking what does it matter? I think that's why this kind of behavior is more dangerous.
I believe that even small animals have the right to live according to their own color and nature. The desire to have pink feathers is due to human desire. That's not a situation the pigeon can choose from. It is harsh to apply artificial colors to weak animals who have no choice. I don't want to treat this as just fun.
