In the interest of security, I say train the pigeon to peck out the message in morse code, and only to recognizable individuals. Have you ever heard of anyone successfully interrogating a pigeon?

    No, but I've seen flocks of wild geese form up in the classic V formation behind a remote controlled glider painted to crudely resemble another goose.

    It would be interesting to see if a morse coding pidgeon would be fooled by a man wearing a mask made from a blown up picture of the face of a "recognizable individual"?

    • Interrogating pigeons?  No.
    • However, denial of service by columbophagy, yes.
