The anatomy of a surveillance pigeon.

Late Thursday night, Gulfport police realized one of their fleet of surveillance pigeons is missing.

The surveillance pigeons are high-tech drones placed inside detailed pigeon look alikes, and police release them into flocks of real pigeons so they blend in.

“We do not want to cause any panic but last night we discovered one of our surveillance pigeons was missing,” GPD posted on their Facebook. “If you see our surveillance pigeon, please do not grab it by the feet, as the inductive charging coils are extremely fragile.”

If you come into contact with these pigeons, please call Gulfport Police Department at (228) 868-5900 and let them know you fell for their April Fool’s Joke. 😉
