I did not know you can shoot someone with a sword, but do they have to duct tape the pigeons' wings so that they don't fly away during the race? So I guess the lesson to be learned here is never bring a pigeon to a sword fight.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information into the incident to call.

I have some video. I think I'll just attach my video to an email and forward it to the Sheriff.

Can you imagine if I really did this? The Sheriff would probably reply back and ask, "what does this have to do with anything?"

It appears pigeon racing is a much rougher sport than most of us realized.

Ah, Fresno, the Florida of California.

(I had family in Hanford, just down the road.)

The assailants drove up after the event started. Outside agitators from Bakersfield, most likely.
