New Delhi :
Pigeons with tiny ‘Make America Great Again’ and Donald Trump hairstyle has been spotted hovering over Las Vegas ahead of the Democratic debate and POTUS’ visit to the city on Wednesday. The mastermind behind this bizarre stunt is believed to be from a group called P.U.T.I.N, an acronym for Pigeons United To Interfere Now. In a press release from Pigeons United To Interfere Now (PUTIN), the group claimed that the move was "inspired by the 1970’s Cold War Operation, 'Tacana', in which the CIA explored the use of pigeons equipped with tiny cameras to spy on Soviet sites of interest."
"The project was the result of months of exhaustive research, logistical hurdles and pigeon care taking," read the statement.
"The release date was also coordinated to serve as a gesture of support and loyalty to President Trump, who is scheduled to arrive in Las Vegas just ahead of the Democratic Debates, for a speech scheduled at The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department headquarters," it continued.

One of the group members, who goes by the name of "Coo Hand Luke" told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the stunt was carried out using eyelash glue and that they've taken great care to ensure the birds are healthy said,
“It’s what women use to put around their eyes for eyelash extensions. The hats usually stay on for a day or two, depending on the bird’s movements’’.
“We can also remove them ourselves as they fly back to the coop. They could be gone for a day, two days or a week, but they always come back.”
"We wash them with Dove [detergent] and get the grease off that usually accumulates from being underneath cars or near grease traps at restaurants while they're looking for food," the group said.
Strangely enough, a similar sight was also encountered by the people of Las Vegas in January when several pigeons were spotted wearing cowboy hats. The person or persons behind the demonstration however, remains unknown to this day.
