It doesn’t get much weirder than this, folks. Yesterday, the People’s Daily, the largest newspaper group in China, reported on their English Twitter feed that “10,000 pigeons go through anal security check for suspicious objects Tue, ready to be released on National Day on Wed.”

That’s right, kids: avian cavity searches.

It was not reported what exactly the bird proctologists were looking for, but the state-run media reported that the birds’ anus, feathers and feet were closely examined for any dangerous materials, with the entire process being videotaped before the birds were placed in sealed trucks ahead of their planned release in Tiananmen Square.

Perhaps the pigeons were suspected of [puts on sunglasses]… fowl play.
