We are not sure how it happened, only that we know it did happen, and that we have photographic evidence of it happening, but last Wednesday, the man blowing bubbles managed to trap a pigeon in one of the larger bubbles.

This is being shared because we can’t believe it either! All we know is that a group calling themselves ‘Allied Proof’ took the attached image.
