If you had £1.5m laying around, what would you spend it on? A new house? A new car? Maybe a private island?
I am sure that there are loads of different things you would rush out to buy.
But I am going to stick my beak out here and hazard a guess that you probably would not spend £1.5m on a pigeon, right?
But that is precisely how much a pigeon sold for recently at an auction. And we aren’t talking about an eBay auction either.
The pigeon, called ‘New Kim’ is, in fact, a racing pigeon. And the £1.5m price tag has just set a new world record.
The starting bid for ‘New Kim’ was just under £200.
However, a price war in the closing moment of the auction meant that the final price was a whopping £1.5m.
Like many of you, I am used to getting into bidding wars on eBay for replacement iPhone charges.
