Racing pigeon travels from Japan to Vancouver Island

A racing pigeon from Japan somehow ended up on Vancouver Island.
The bird ended up in Vancouver Island 1:56

No one is sure exactly how a Japanese racing pigeon ended up on Vancouver Island.

The bird was found near Comox, and has been recovering at a rescue centre in Courtenay for the past two weeks.

An electronic tag clasped on the pigeon's foot is proof the bird came from Japan, nearly 8,000 kilometres away.
