SOUTH SALEM, N.Y. - A tagged pigeon is on the loose in South Salem and some Good Samaritans are hopeful of reuniting it with its handler.

A South Salem resident reported to Lost Pets of Westchester County on Tuesday morning that a pigeon had flown onto her deck in South Salem and was approachable before eventually flying off to a nearby tree.

The woman reported to the organization that she was able to get a look at the band on its leg, which bore the characters AU 2017 and 5969.

According to the National Pigeon Association, domestic pigeons with individually identifiable leg bands are registered with one of several National Pigeon Organizations. The AU on the band stands for the American Racing Pigeon Union.

Anyone who may be missing their pigeon or has information about the missing bird can contact Lost Pets of Westchester County here.
