China’s Pigeon Army

The Chinese army is recruiting 10 000 pigeons and training them for military and communication purposes. If the communication system ever breaks down in China, then pigeons would be able to help save the day and deliver important messages. They could also be used for military missions between borders. China has been using pigeons to help their army since 1950, but so far it has only a few hundred pigeons not 10 000!
