This is a dove. I have held a real live dove. It had a broken wing because my dad shot it. It had a short fat body, big tail and a little head. So back to the shot part. It got shot because me and my dad were at a family dove hunt. My dad sent me to get the dove (since Dusty is useless - I'm the retriever). At first it was freaky because the dove was moving. When I would put my boot on it it would flop. After 3 minutes of staring at it I finally got the courage to pick up the flopping dove. It was cute. It was small. It was injured. It was also innocent. I took the sweet, little dove to my dad and he pulled it`s head off and in case you didn`t hear me he pulled it`s head off!!!!! We had dove for dinner the past two nights. Tastes like chicken.
