looks like our iron mike tyson has a soft spot and its for pigeons,, i think thats kinda cool ,, actualy as a fact after his last fight he lost he couldnt be found noware but in his pigeon coop he musta been caliming his nerves. here's the write up i found on his website.

Boxer Mike Tyson's best bird buddies are getting a new home.

A $12,000 pigeon coop that will provide Tyson's pets with 100 square feet of air-conditioned comfort was given the go-ahead on Tuesday by officials in the posh Phoenix suburb of Paradise Valley, Arizona.

The troubled ex-heavyweight champion's love for pigeons is well documented. Tyson gained a reputation as a fighter while growing up in New York after pummeling a bully who killed one of his pigeons, according several accounts of his career.

Fallen boxing champion MIKE TYSON's has won the right to build a pigeon coop in the backyard of his Arizona home following a delays over a permit.

Tyson, who says he owns 350 pigeons, hatched plans to house them in their very own structure on his Sun Valley property.

But a neighbour questioned the construction last month (JUN05) and inspectors were sent to the house, where it was discovered that a permit had not been obtained for the structure.

Officials then ordered that Tyson or his representative file the necessary paperwork to obtain a building permit before work could resume.

Officials approved Tyson's plans yesterday (19JUL05), stating that there is nothing prohibiting the number of birds a homeowner can have on his or her property

I think he filed bankruptcy and then everyone starts saying he is broke. Bankrupt and Broke are 2 different things.

And yes, hes been a pigeon freak for years and years.

You raped the poor chick dead, held it with your teeth celebrating your new hunt before feeding it to a monitor lizard. And you call Mike Tyson nuts...

i seen this about him a few years back on jimmy kimmel's show
Yea i saw him on Carson Daily's late night show a few years ago and Carson gave him a pigeon. He was all excited about it. At the time I didnt know about Tyson's hobby and Im thinking, please dont give it to him he'll bite his head off or light it on fire or something. Turns out he's a really good guy with pigeons.
