Coloured pigeons cause outcry in Venice


(ANSA) - Venice, August 27 - Animal rights activists in
Venice were up in arms on Monday over an artistic performance
involving the use of dyed birds.
"Some pigeons are more equal than others" by Swiss German
artist Julian Charriere saw the release of blue, red and yellow
birds previously fed with coloured pigments as a collateral
event at the 13th international architecture exhibition, which
opens in the lagoon city on August 29.
The vegetarian association and anti vivisection league
reported the incident to the local municipal and health
authorities, asking if it might not be considered a case of
animal abuse on grounds that the birds are part of the city's
"indispensable state heritage".
"While we can fully understand the motivation apparently put
forward by the artist, 'pigeons are abused and denigrated', we
certainly cannot share in the use he makes of them, which is
totally uneducational and distorted: yet again animals are
treated like objects from which to derive visibility and
profit," said activists Cristina Romieri and Tatiana Zanotti.
