Over a span of two months, PETA went undercover
into the world of pigeon
racing in the United Kingdom and discovered believed
illegal activity and deadly outcomes for hundreds of thousands of birds during a single racing season. PETA investigated all the major pigeon-racing organizations in the U.K. and documented British pigeon races starting in the Channel Islands, France, and Spain. These races across the English Channel are so deadly that they are often called "graveyard" races.
