This is the story of Bob a pigeon that happens to live in the UK.
So how does a UK pigeon wind up in Alabama? Blown off course by a storm.
Bob was found in Alabama having somehow crossed the Atlantic Ocean after setting off from Guernsey in the Channel Islands.
Animal shelter staff identified him by his leg ring and were able to contact owner Alan Todd, from Gateshead, who jetted to the US to bring him back.
Mr Todd thanked the “small army of people” involved in Bob’s safe return.
