Pigeon sells for R28 million

A racing pigeon has been sold at an auction in Belgium for R28 million!

The final half-hour of the auction saw two Chinese bidders drive prices sky high.

“Everybody is interested in our pigeons,” Pascal Bodengien, head of the Belgian Pigeon Federation, told The Associated Press.

At least Cyril Rampahosa can relax the next time he takes the heat for bidding on a buffalo for R18 million.
