Two people arrested after swastikas were carved into the chests of two pigeons

Two people have been arrested after swastikas were found carved into the chests of two dead pigeons.

The birds were found with the offensive, anti-Semitic symbol, which is synonymous with the Nazi Party, on St Neots’ High Street in Cambridgeshire. 

It is unclear whether the rodents were already dead when the horrific symbol was carved into them or if they died from the carving.

Police were called out to the incident last Tuesday and have since arrested a 21-year-old woman from Baldock and a 23-year-old man from Chatteris.

Both were arrested by Huntingdonshire neighbourhood police on suspicion of racist/religious public order offences today and remain in custody.

In a separate incident in June 2023, two men who had drawn a swastika on a black housemate’s door, and perpetrated a number of other forms of vile and racist abuse in The Whaddons, Huntingdon, were jailed. 

In another incident in June 2022, a dog walker came across a huge swastika emblazoned on the grass in Cherry Hill, Ely.

The same symbol, was found sprayed more recently near the Guru Har Rai Gurdwara Sahib temple in High Street in West Bromwich, on signs for a Sikh event running from August 26.

A statement from Huntingdonshire police posted on social media said today: ‘A man and a woman have been arrested in connection with the death of two pigeons in St Neots.

‘Police were called on 22 August with reports dead pigeons with swastikas carved into their chests had been found in the High Street.

‘Today officers, from the Huntingdonshire neighbourhood team, arrested a 21-year-old woman from Baldock and a 23-year-old man from Chatteris on suspicion of racial/religious public order.

‘They remain in custody.’
