A St. Paul man claims that 40 to 45 racing pigeons worth $10,000 were stolen from his home last month, according to the Star Tribune.
A police report says the birds were taken from the 1100 block of Wilson Avenue between 11 p.m Nov. 15 and 8 a.m. Nov. 16. The man waited to report the theft to police because he wanted to get in touch with the city's animal control department first.
Police say there are no suspects.
St. Paul is home to the Twin City Concourse Association, Inc., a pigeon racing club.
