British pigeons ‘turning into zombies’ 

A MYSTERIOUS disease is infecting British birds and turning them into slow moving ‘zombies’ with deformed necks.

The highly infectious virus has already spread rapidly in Jersey pigeons and is feared to be circulating throughout the UK bird population.

Horrific symptoms of the disease include deformed necks, dangerously thin bodies, and it takes away the bird’s ability to fly, walk in straight lines or move quickly. 

Pigeon paramyxovirus, also known as PPMV or Newcastle’s Disease, will also turn the bird’s faeces green and they are at risk of dying within a few days.

Other signs to watch out for are trembling or paralysis of the wings and legs with a reluctance to move and eat.

Good grief!
