Footballer accidentally kills pigeon

Sunday, December 21, 2008

A player has accidentally killed a pigeon as his attempted shot on goal went toward a group of pigeons looking for seeds in the grass.

San Lorenzo defender Gastón Aguirre killed the poor pigeon during his team's 2-1 victory over Tigre in the three-team round-robin for the Argentine league title.

Surrounded by opponents, Aguirre kicked the ball toward the goal and in the direction of a group of pigeons on the grass near the corner. An explosion of feathers followed and the pigeons flew away — except one.

Several players surrounded the wounded bird as it tried to fly away but it collapsed. The referee then scooped up the dead pigeon and placed it off the field.

"It was unfortunate. I kicked the ball and, poor pigeon," Aguirre said. "Now I will be remembered as the pigeon killer."
