Pigeon brings Dh100,000 to four hunters

Used as bait to catch rare falcon

Four Saudi men shared SR100,000 (Dh100,000) they made from the sale of a rare falcon which they hunted with the help of a pigeon.

The four were on a hunting trip in North Saudi Arabia when they spotted the falcon, according to local newspapers.

After setting off the pigeon as bait, the falcon chased the bird for a few minutes before it was caught in the hunters’ net.

A falcon dealer in the Northern town of Rafha offered the four SR100,000 for the falcon.
